The newest addition to the neighborhood restaurant scene is Sissy's Southern Kitchen and Bar, located where Hector's on Henderson once stood. Music from Amy Winehouse and Etta James played through the speakers. Our server, looking retro-spiffy in red suspenders, bow tie and white apron tied around his waist, was friendly and attentive.
Even Miss Ela Hockaday would approve of this restaurant's elegant take on Southern Comfort foods. The Squash Puppies with Jalapeño Jelly and Honey Butter were a fab blend of hot & sweet plus soft inside & crunchy crust. The gumbo was velvety smooth, the Cast Iron Texas Quail and aged ribeye were both utterly perfect, and the "Better Than Sex Chocolate Cake" was pretty darn close to orgasmic. Ok, so maybe Miss Ela would have ordered the bread pudding instead, but she'd be missing out.
