Sides at Comfort (Richmond)

Had my first lunch at Comfort today. I chose it because it's just off on 95, perfect for lunch when I'm traveling to visit my folks in NC. I had the catfish entree (don't eat meat). The fish was excellent. I chose mac and cheese and green beans as my two sides. The beans were pretty good. The mac just OK. Several posters indicated that the sides are very good. Which ones in particular? How are the brussels sprouts? The greens? The squash casserole? The scalloped potatoes? I will not order the mac again, can do much better at home. Thank you!

  1. here's a link to my review (OP) which talks about a LOT of the sides. the two you got weren't our favorite. sorry! but i loved my catfish!
    only one you question we didn't try was the squash casserole but the other 3 (greens, brussels, scalloped potatoes were really great) but as my review mentioned some of it is in the pairings.

      Everyone, THANK YOU! I'm sorry I missed your previous post, AMFM. Next try I will go for creamed spinach or scalloped potatoes with the very fresh green beans. Not into the vinegary stuff.

      1. re: aya

        you might like the squash casserole too. i want to try it next time.

    2. The squash casserole and braised greens are both excellent. Dh swears by the scalloped potatoes. I abhor Brussel sprouts, so no help there. My SIL always gets the roasted beets.

        Another vote for the braised greens! I also like the cheese grits and I'm not much of a grits eater. On the appetizer menu, you might try the fried green tomatoes which are always good. And definitely get a glass of limeade!

          I adore the fried okra. It's cut lengthwise and fried, making it crispy and delicious! Yum, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...

            The fried okra were very good the one time I went, as were the fried green tomatoes.
