Rose and Sons

Portion sizing was skimpy, but the dessert was good.

I can’t say I was impressed by the portion size of the Fried Chicken and Soft’n’Sexy Grits; one piece of chicken in the middle of some lumpy, white sauce. The accompanying poached egg was perfectly done. The fried chicken was juicy and covered with a thin skin of flavourful seasoning, though I prefer a thicker, crispy batter. I don’t remember if I’ve ever had grits, but these tasted like a watery porridge with an addictive savoury element that compelled me to keep shoveling it into my mouth even though I was unsure whether I enjoyed them.

The Apple Fritters came with fresh ricotta, wildflower honey, and pecans. They were tasty little balls of dough with a sugar layer that manages not to be too sweet, and juicy pieces of apple embedded inside. I am not a fan of ricotta, and could have done without it, but it was not detrimental to the dish. The honey and pecans were delicious, though hard to integrate with the fritters.
