It was a chilly night, and the scent of wood smoke was in the air as we sat down at Boone's upscale version of a country kitchen diner. This restaurant knows what it does best and doesn't try to be all things to all people. Each night of the week there are blue plate specials. The Wednesday options included meatloaf, pulled pork, fried chicken, fried catfish, and baked ziti. Though they all sounded delicious, we chose the special of the night -- slices of perfectly fried chicken breast served over dirty rice and topped with a light sundried tomato bechamel sauce. It was fabulous -- tasty and artful without being overly rich. The comforting sides included not only the expected mac & cheese and mashed potatoes, but also some less common items like braised cabbage, pickled beets, sweet potato casserole and collard greens. Fresh cornbread and biscuits accompanied the meal, and tea served in mason jar glasses added to the charm. But the best was yet to come. We were too stuffed to eat dessert while we were there (even though the dessert case was tempting me throughout the meal), but I ordered the chocolate chip bread pudding to go. The next morning, a 30-second zap in the microwave, and I was in heaven. I don't know if they made their pudding with biscuits instead of bread, but there was a delicate layering that was fabulous...it was incredibly delicious without that heavy feeling that sometimes befalls bread pudding. I would love to visit this place again...maybe get the plate of sides (your can order a combo of 3 or 4), since I didn't get to sample as many as I might have liked. And next time, I'll make sure that I leave room for dessert!
