The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Present another option when there are no illusionists handy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of southern fare at Sandra Dee's Bar-B-Que and Seafood on 15th Street.
Sandra Dee's menu showcases the soul of classic southern fare with a variety of hearty eats. Wear a bib (and only a bib) while diving into a tangy-sauced pile of beef tri-tips ($13.50), or build a pyramid of cornbread muffins ($1 each) to house the regal flavors of the deep-fried red snapper ($13.50). Sandra Dee's combo platters allow diners to avoid committing to just one dish—pile a plate with your choice of four meats or seafoods and select two large sides, such as mac 'n' cheese or red beans and rice with smoked turkey, to fill out the feast ($25).
Sandra first started learning authentic Creole cooking techniques at age 9 from her maman (French for “mom”) and moemoe (French for “grandma” and “the sound of two stooges’ heads being clonked together”) and spices each dish with just the right amount of love and raucous accordion.
