Owner Dixie Evans, who once studied under renowned pastry chefs Ron Ben-Israel and Minette Rushing, teams up with fellow baker Sarah Henson to craft unique sweet treats in a plethora of mouthwatering flavors. Nibble through a dozen regular cupcakes or go gourmet with 12 specialty cupcakes in flavors such as turtle sundae, carrot cake, red velvet and peach blossom, plucked fresh from the orchard. Libation lovers can ditch the straw and consume their favorite drinks in a solid state with cupcake varieties including piña colada, strawberry margarita, and mocha coffee cream.
Though the entrees at The Dixie Cafe make the biggest splash across its menu marquee, they're threatened with gastronomical upstaging by the southern-style eatery's 19 sides and scratch-made gravies. The chicken-fried steak, for example, is a tender, hand-breaded fillet that fully blossoms with flavor only after chefs smother it with cream gravy and cheddar cheese. And the Cajun grilled catfish's down-home taste isn't fully developed until it is paired up with bites of turnip greens, fried okra, or a homemade roll. The classic platter meals take advantage of this by pairing an entree with two sides, rolls, and jalapeño cornbread and can be ordered "light" for a portion that's smaller than the regular size and easier to toss in the air and catch in your mouth.
The cuisine at Lori's Grill on the Plaza isn?t linked by a region, but by the handcrafted care with which it?s prepared. Here, cooks make pan-seared crab cakes by hand, wrap juicy filet mignons in bacon, and stuff Greek-inspired chicken breast with feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, and black olives. They even whip up nine fettuccini alfredos?including a cajun-style shrimp version?with sauce made from a secret recipe known only to cooks and the spy stuck in the kitchen radiator.
