Now that spinach has been classified as a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to fried green tomatoes. Get a sailor's worth of energizing, contemporary southern cuisine with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of comestibles at Nancy G's Cafe in the Fountain Oaks Shopping Center.
Natural light streams through wide, white-draped windows, dappling the open, airy space of tables and booths at Nancy G's. While relaxing in the casual and friendly atmosphere, diners can peruse the menu for brunch, lunch, and dinner fare made with a mama's love and a traveling carnival's panache. Brunch, the Minotaur of the meal universe, is a simple affair. Try the classic eggs benedict ($8.95), the buttermilk pancakes ($5.95), or two buttermilk biscuits served with sausage gravy and two eggs any style ($7.95). Because breakfast has long been an excuse to eat dessert as a meal, Nancy G's crafts a delectable, homemade blueberry topping ($1.95) made from macerated blueberries and ricotta cheese to tastefully top waffles, pancakes, and French toast.
Lunch and dinner share menu space, but the menu is extensive, ensuring that tabletop drool stains will come only from hungry, and never somnolent, customers. Fried green tomatoes ($6.95) come with goat cheese, Cajun rémoulade, spicy pecans, and a pinch of cilantro and may or may not transform customers into Kathy Bates. Myriad sandwiches take advantage of human grasping appendages, such as the grilled portobello ($8.95), marinated in balsamic and served with goat cheese, field greens, and sliced tomato on toasted ciabatta, or the fish tacos ($9.95), two flour tortillas stuffed to the gills with blackened mahi-mahi, tomato salsa, field greens, and sliced avocado. Entrees are available to fill even the most cavernous and mossy stomach. Country-fried chicken breast ($16.95) in country gravy is a simple classic served with mac 'n' cheese and green beans. For sea-meat seekers, the shrimp-and-grits entree ($19.95) comes sautéed with peppers and onions in a white-wine garlic sauce, while two jumbo southern-style crab cakes ($22.95) are topped with Cajun rémoulade and served with wild-rice pilaf and the veggie du jour.
