Most people won't eat a vegetable unless it is fried, just like they won't walk a dog who isn't wearing a bow tie. Pick your battles with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southern-style fare, in addition to one dessert, at Miss Maude's Spoonbread Too (a $34.95 value).
The chefs at Miss Maude's Spoonbread Too honor their restaurant's jazzy namesake by serving up comfort fare that the New York Times, the New York Post, O, The Oprah Magazine, and New York Magazine have all raved about. Miss Maude's Famous seafood gumbo kicks off a feast ($3.95 for a cup; $5.95 for a bowl) of crispy Southern fried chicken ($12.95) or Louisiana catfish ($15.95), which come with cornbread and a choice of two sides such as black-eyed peas, collard greens, candied yams, and slammin’ mac 'n' cheese. Fruity Spoonbread punch ($3) washes down a classic dessert—such as coconut layer cake, red velvet cake, homemade peach cobbler, and Miss Maude's Signature banana pudding with sweet Southern charm.
