Welcome to the hipster South, a restaurant that does all the classic dishes (lots of fried food) but does them with twists. Instead of hush puppies, you get delightfully sweet "squash puppies," and the deviled eggs have a potent curry punch. The classics are just as good whether you go for the chicken-fried steak, creamy grits and shrimp, or the andouille-laden gumbo. Sissy's is famous for its fried chicken, though for the life of me, I don't know why (on a recent visit it was woefully dry). As for the setting, it's a Carson McCullers' version of the South (a tad twisted) with delightfully eccentric touches like stuffed deer heads, collectable plates on the walls, and waiters who wear colorful bow ties and curly moustaches. During the daylight hours, ask to sit on the cheery, screened-in porch.
