Smothered Gravy opened up its doors for business in late March. Back in September, the Dispatch announced proprietor Eugena Dade’s vision for “‘fine comfort food’ at affordable prices.”
From the Dispatch article:
“The restaurant and its menu are meant to re-create old-fashioned family meals at Grandma’s house.
“Signature dishes will include baked chicken with yellow rice, black beans and cornbread, and smothered chicken with mashed potatoes and collard greens or cabbage.
“Breakfast offerings will include smothered chicken with waffles or grits, and sauteed shrimp served over grits.”
Dade has a long history of involvement in the Near East, and on E. Main Street in particular. Her aunt owned a Marian’s restaurant, at the corner of Main Street & Gilbert Avenue, for years through the 1960’s.
