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.

She said "best shrimp and grits this side of Luke." Luke is in New Orleans. Ergo, New Orleans ain't moving anywhere.
