    The House of Chicken and Waffles

    444 Embarcadero W. Oakland CA 94607
    The fried chicken is extraordinary and the waffles uneven (ask for them crispy or they'll come out undercooked) at this immaculate take on a 50's diner. The menu's numerous named plates are changes wrung on chicken and various combinations of waffles, eggs, grits, Southern vegetables (cooked with smoked turkey instead More

    Farmerbrown

    25 Mason San Francisco CA 94102
    Casually elegant Tenderloin venue serves up cajun and creole nouvelle soul cuisine: fried catfish, candied yams, and other classics prepared with locally raised organic ingredients and a lighter new-millennium touch. The Farmerbrown menu might feature lighter-than-air angel biscuits, crisply fried chicken with Tillamook-draped mac 'n' cheese, and spicy, crunchy shrimp More

    2261 Shattuck Berkeley CA 94704
    All the classic NOLA specialties are on offer at this friendly brick-walled storefront cafe: hushpuppies, gumbo, jambalaya, blackened fish, barbecue shrimp, catfish, po'boys, beignets, loud music. Originals among Angeline's creations include baked crawfish-stuffed shrimp in piquante sauce and Bananas Foster bread pudding. We wish the fried chicken weren't boneless, but More

Refined New American cooking, using French techniques and Southern accents, in a comfortable dark-brown room in the revitalized Fillmore Preservation Jazz District. Occasional live jazz in the adjacent bar and lounge room (pleasantly audible in the dining room) reminds you of the street's heritage (as does a dazzling wall of More

Rich, juicy honey-glazed chicken wings and other soul-satisfying fare stars at this friendly Hunters Point hangout. Robust collard greens with bacon, sweet and spicy yams, and hot, crumbly cornbread are among the menu's highlights. The crunchy-crusted fried chicken and buttery (if limply textured) waffles are made to order. More

This nationally renowned club in the heart of the theater district offers top-drawer electric blues for the business set seven nights a week. Its posh digs don't reference the seedy jook joints of the genre's history, but the food and drinks are reasonably priced and there isn't a bad seat More

On weekends you can join the lines outside and patiently wait for Jay Foster's inexpensive, generous, delicious Southern-accented breakfast dishes. During the week, it's easier to slip in and sit (at the big U-shaped counter or the eight or so wooden tables) and enjoy eggs, pork chops, and grits; wonderful More

Some of the best barbecue in the Bay Area is being served up at this pleasant, spacious spot, with a large deck area. Bo McSwine uses Niman Ranch meats to turn out his slow-cooked ribs and brisket, and organic chicken for the succulent barbecued birds. Sides are limited (potato salad, More

There may be zydeco on the soundtrack and "Let the bons temps rouler" on the menu at this Hayes Valley restaurant, but otherwise, the stylish Boxing Room largely avoids Cajun and Creole cliches. Louisiana-born chef Justin Simoneaux sticks to the Southern palate he grew up with, but plays down the More

Brenda Buenviaje's Creole-inspired restaurant in the Tenderloin is twice the size it used to be, the decor as monochromatic and still as the old space was color-soused and cluttered. But the legendary brunch lines at Brenda's French Soul Food have not abated, nor has the reputation of Buenviaje's biscuits, chocolate-filled More

The Broken Record balances itself nicely along the fence between low-brow and highbrow cultures: tattooed bartenders, indie/alt-rock on the stereo, and cheap Pabst keep things unpretentious, while the wall of fine whiskeys and delicious homemade food attract those whose palates wouldn't be caught dead with a PBR. The sweet back More

Star chef Joseph Humphrey’s Presidio destination, Dixie, combines the flavors of the Old South with cutting-edge Left Coast touches, and the results are mostly successful. Start with the smoked and pickled beets with ricotta and sumac, or the fried quail with spicy slaw and a garlicky waffle. Top entrées include More
