Is there a place for grits and potato pancakes?

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

I had them there about a year ago. They were great. I realized that this probably does you no good other than to confirm that you missed out.

I have had them; I thought they were good (except one time). The last time I ate them there, they were not good. My companion's food wasn't very good either so we stopped going. I only returned recently because a friend was having birthday drinks there. The food had improved, but there were no potato pancakes.

Noticed that Bassett St. Brunch Club has shrimp and grits, or you can get loaded grits as a side.

North Bristol Sportsmans Club has potato pancakes for their smelt fries (now sadly done for the year). Possibly they serve them other times?

The sweet potato oatmeal pancakes at Short Stack may be good:

Never have understood the fascination with grits as I've always thought they were just yucky. And yes, I've lived in the deep south twice now and they are still just a version of malt-o-meal which is insipid stuff at best. There are already way better things you can do with that cheese and those shrimp than to degrade them with grits. Also believe sausage gravy is an abomination, could hardly choke it down the first time I had it.

But to each their own I suppose. As long as step-daughter-in-law doesn't present me with sausage gravy again like it's some sort of high treat, I'll be OK :wtf:

Stalzy's Deli on Atwood has potato pancakes, as does Perkins. Shrimp and grits on the menu at Bassett Street Brunch Club.

The Egg & I has grits. I tried them last time and they were pretty good. Then again everything there is good.
