Willa Jean NOLA, 1885 Grill 'Nooga, The Glory Of Laminated Biscuits, And The Intl Biscuit FestivalThursday, July 28, 2016
Willa Jean, from a couple of different visits
Light fixtures encased in big Hobart-style whisks
SEC biscuit: sausage, egg, pimento cheese
Pigs in a blanket + apricot mustard
This was a little plate of different toasts: smoked salmon / avocado / mushroom
fried chicken sandwich on a Hawaiian roll
for dessert, we shared chocolate chip cookies with vanilla milk and a little whisk of cookie batter
Everything here is just great.

On the speakers at Willa Jean, a lot of 70s and 80s, including:
Okay, let's talk about these laminated biscuits. Another place we really, really like, 1885 Grill in Chattanooga, does biscuits that same way and it's just delicious.
Knoxville's Marble City Kitchen won People's Choice Award at the International Biscuit Festival in May of this year for their "Bourbon and Blue": Meyer Lemon Southern Biscuit stuffed with Blueberry Cobbler, topped with our very own George Dickel Single Barrel Vanilla Maple Cream Sauce
