Southern comfort hits the table in the form of Shrimp and Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Chili Biscuits at chef-owner Chris Williams’ classy restaurant, bar, and patio. Those Chili Biscuits (which have now reached Top Chef fame) as well as the spot’s decor pay tribute to Williams’ great-grandmother, Lucille B. Smith, a African-American entrepreneur, chef, and pioneer in the food and hospitality industry. When the weather is right, enjoy a modern spin on traditional Southern goods even more out on Lucille’s tree-shaded, string light-bedecked patio.

If you’ve ever needed a reminder as to how delicious Southern fare can be, Lucille’s awaits. Here, brunchers can stroll through a tropical paradise with a cocktail—we’re talking orange and lavender surprises, a classic Margarita, and an explosive Firecracker concoction that positions the heat first, citrus second. Then, dig into delights like Chicken and Sweet Potato Waffles engulfed in pecan-laced syrup and chilis, Grits laden with either plump shrimp or catfish, French Toast drizzled with berries, and a light Eggs Benny with all the veggies. Southern hospitality indeed.

This Southern charmer’s “herstory” starts with Lucille B. Smith, educator, culinary innovator, and great granny of co-owners Chris and Ben Williams. At Lucille’s, the Williams brothers pay homage to their family’s matriarch with delicious old-school comforts, sharing and reinterpreting some of her best recipes. We’re talking (or rather gushing) about a surplus of chicken and seafood sandwiches, catfish, and buttery grits, plus Roasted Hen paired with baked mac and cheese and Great Grandma’s famous (and totally poppable) Chili Biscuits.
