Biscuit lovers take note: Muscadine is opening this Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Laura Rhoman, an eighth-generation Mississippi native and the former executive chef at Slappycakes, and her wife, Libby, have put the finishing touches on their Southern-focused breakfast and lunch spot called Muscadine, named after an indigenous Southern grape.
The 40-seat restaurant took over the former Tiga space in the mini-complex that's home to Extracto Coffee, Pok Pok Noi and Grain & Gristle. It's kitted out with a pressed-tin bar, hickory banquettes, a pocket of an open kitchen, and sweet Southern charm.
They had a soft-opening all weekend, which allowed them to get enough feedback to edit down the menu. Stop by this week and you'll find an assortment of Southern classics like crispy fried chicken, cornmeal-crusted fried okra, flaky biscuits topped with gravy, and hot powdered-sugar-dusted beignets.
Muscadine: 1465 N.E. Prescott St., Ste. F, 503-841-5576
Hours: Wednesday through Monday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
