Move over New Orleans -- Front Porch has the best shrimp and grits
Beignets, fried okra, gumbo, red beans and rice, even po' boys . . . all of it's at least a little overpriced, but what I love is the atmosphere is down-to-earth. The front porch itself. The checkered floor, wooden tables, what Happy's li'l son calls "the chocolate bar ceiling" . . . Wait, there's nothing down-to-earth about a chocolate bar ceiling. Or any other kind, come to think of it.
I just can't believe it took me this long to get there.
