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.
Amid a 7,000 square-foot eatery adorned in wicker accents, the chefs at Chutnys draw inspiration from both North and South India, which yields a lengthy menu of dishes that differ in terms of spiciness and use of the color puce. All the meat used in curry and barbecue meals are prepared according to halal traditions, while the restaurant’s vegetarian dishes are rich in spinach, cheese, and spices—making them no less flavorful than their meaty counterparts. Chutnys invites larger events into their banquet hall, where they present aromatic feasts for groups as small at 10 and as large as 250.
Ever since Sam Wolfinbarger opened up his downstairs bar in the early 40s, Sam's cellar has been a favorite watering hole among happy hour crowds, strangers passing through, and neighborhood regulars alike. Guests sip frosty draft glasses and bottles of beer as they dine on wood-fired pizzas, oven-baked penne pastas, and light chicken wraps.
