After establishing itself as the go-to Southern dinner cuisine, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar will open for lunch tomorrow. Much like the dinner menu, lunch offerings will include Chef Lisa Garza’s signature comfort food featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Expect menu staples such as Sissy’s Fried Chicken mixed in with a few newcomers. At the media lunch I was invited to, I tried entrée salads include Pickled Gulf Shrimp over spinach, Lump Crab Cake with fine herb salad and shallot vinaigrette and Herb Poached Red Snapper atop mixed greens with preserved lemon vinaigrette. Sissy’s always knows how to pick the juiciest, plumpest shrimp. The crab cakes melt in your mouth and the red snapper is cooked to perfection.
The menu will also feature sandwiches like a Crispy Texas Catfish Po’ Boy and Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich. The chicken fried steak reminds me of my childhood trips to DQ, but made with the posh Sissy flair with crispy onions to add enough crunch to your sandwich.
The menu rounds out with sides such as mac and cheese, sloppy slaw and creamed biscuits.
