Crab hush puppies at State of Grace

Harold's in the Heights
South Carolina native Alli Jarrett’s spot on 19th Street has a fiercely loyal following. Try the double-brined cast iron skillet chicken served with Texas cheddar mac and cheese and braised greens for a supremely Southern supper. 350 W. 19th St., 713.360.6204

Kitchen 713
This Wash Ave. eatery serves an amazing brunch. Think pecan pie French toast, sweet potato pancakes, and biscuits and gravy. 4601 Washington Ave., 713.842.7114

Ouisie's Table
Elouise Adams Jones’ elegant spot is a mainstay for Houston society. The shrimp and grits are legendary, and be sure to indulge in the jalapeno cheddar biscuits from the bread basket. 3939 San Felipe St., 713.528.2264

Punk's Simple Southern Food
Fried chicken is the center of everything at this Rice Village spot by Clark Cooper Concepts. Check out the cool cocktail menu too. 5212 Morningside Drive, 713.524.7865

State of Grace
Atlanta-based, Houston-born celebrity chef Ford Fry opened this spot a few years back. The seafood tower is piled high with goodies, and the crab hush puppies come with sweet honey butter. 3258 Westheimer Road, 832.942.5080
