Best Southern Cookin’
Critics, upstate: Southern hospitality has made its way north in the form of The Augusta Grille in the Clarion Hotel. With dishes such as spicy peanut soup (puréed roasted peanuts cooked in a creamy chicken broth flavored with lemongrass and sweet chili peppers) and pan-seared crab and crawfish cakes, there’s no denying the menu’s Southern roots. The sweet potato- and pecan-crusted catfish is made with farm-raised fish that is seared, coated in grated sweet potato and pecans, baked and served with an andouille sausage cream. On the third Sunday of the month, Miss Mattie’s Southern Dinner offers a catfish or fried chicken entrée paired with such sides as fried okra, collard greens, stewed tomatoes, mac and cheese, and cabbage, to name a few. That ought to keep y’all happy. (1612 N. Dupont Hwy., New Castle, 299-1414)
