Bright Star rates up there as one of my favorite
southern restaurants. It's out of another era, a
kinder, gentler and more gentile South.
And they do chicken
and dumplings right. My definition of "right" is
how I see the dish in my mind's eye - chunks of chicken
in a rich chicken gravy with tiny soft dumplings dropped
in. This is one of those dishes everyone makes
differently. It's always good, but usually
different than I was expecting.
Started with a bowl
of seafood gumbo. One of their specialties and
packed with crab.
