In October, we checked out The King's Kitchen located uptown. It is non profit restaurant that serves a southern cuisine from local farms and employs men and women from various backgrounds whom would be considered unemployable. It was great to join others in fellowship, eat well and give back to the community all in one event. Here is what the attendees had to say:
"The restaurant atmosphere was nice, it had a home feeling with a sense of class not your typical southern cooking hole in the wall which I appreciated."
"I had shrimp and grits which was delicious although a slightly smaller size than I anticipated. It actually wasn't a bad thing bc I was satisfied and not overly stuffed. The dinner conversation was good, nice to debate about relationships, men and women, careers and life in general.""The crab cakes appetizer was good , seasoned well crispy on the outside just like I like with the inside integrity still in place. The cornbread left lots to be desired it was not moist at all and I'm use to the sweeter corn bread it was not at all! So I definitely won't be ordering it again."
"I had the salmon with 3 sides, creamy corn, seared cabbage and macaroni and cheese with a biscuit. Everything was very tasty, but I didn't care too much for how the cabbage was cooked."
"I thoroughly enjoyed myself, the conversation and can't wait to attend another event!"
"The shrimp and grits at first glance looked like an appetizer more than an entree but packs a punch. Seasoned to perfection the grits were amazing and I found myself satisfied and not still hungry as I expected when I first saw the presentation so don't let it fool you! All in all I enjoyed my experience and will definitely be back to try that chicken I saw on others plates :)"
