Chicken pot pie with house salad and house bread. Made with specially cooked chicken breast meat, a host of roasted root vegetables, and a scrumptious sauce made with our own chicken stock, S.H.E. chicken pot pie redefines mom’s old standby meal. TV weatherman Al Roker notes, “You can’t go wrong with relatively simple comfort food. It’s also about ease. Some cook to impress. I cook for people to enjoy the food.” Well said.

Overnight brisket with roasted broccoli and cauliflower puree, house salad, and a honey-buttermilk biscuit. The stuff of legends, our overnight brisket, slow-cooked in a special blend of garlic, onions, spices and dark beer, will cheer your tummy and your table. The Masai tribe has a proverb about brisket: “The man does not see the brisket he is eating.” While we’re exactly sure what that means, they have some others that are interesting. “A person does not itch from a thorn that is not his;” or, “Coal laughs at ashes, not knowing that the same fate which has befallen them will befall it;” or, “Don’t fight a lion with a stick” (that one seems pretty obvious); or, “It is impossible to find a man who has everything, but it is possible to find one who enjoys the things he has;” or “A zebra takes its stripes wherever it goes.” Or, our favorite: “A lion can run faster than we can, but we can run farther.” Not sure we want to test that one.

Fantastic Thursday: Lightly breaded drum with shrimp scampi sauce, house salad, and house bread. We take a generous portion of drum, bread it lightly, pan fry it until golden brown, and then we add a wonderful shrimp scampi sauce — just what you need near the end of the week. This week, way back in 1948, the brainchild of Horace Lee Logan, The Louisiana Hayride, premiered on Shreveport’s KWKH-AM radio. As a direct competitor to The Grand Ole Opry, The Louisiana Hayride sought young, undiscovered talent, and unlike The Opry, they allowed the electric guitar on stage. Hank Williams played in 1948 as did many other rising country stars, but it wasn’t until 1954 when an unlikely star arose. Suffering from a poor performance on The Opry, he came to Shreveport to ply his musical wares, giving a powerful performance of “That’s All Right (Mama)” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky.” Yep. You guessed it. Our old friend Elvis. Two years later and a fully blown musical star, he returned to the The Hayride with a standing room only performance. When the fans rushed the stage to find Elvis after he sang, they heard Logan say over the loud speakers: “Please, young people…Elvis has left the building…please take your seats.” Well, in addition to peanut butter and banana sandwiches, the King likes pan-fried drum — he’ll be here on Thursday. So, come join us, Elvis is in the building.
