MSP: Southern Food?

I'm looking for a place that sells good southern style food. I never thought to ask because I just didn't think there was much of anything up here until I saw a post about a place in Milwaukee that has a great looking menu... wondering if there were any place around in the cities.

    Brasa is so weak. Though, for MSP Chowhounds, I am sure it is authentic. Terrible grits, lame chicken, bad spices on the pork. Go Team!

      Thanks everyone. I have been meaning to go to Brasa and haven't had the chance. Glad to know the food there is worth making the trip. I will check it out this week.

        If you want the best creole in the great white north, check out Brasa in NE Mpls. Their fried plantains make my heart melt.

          Steph said it. Brasa.

          I grew up in Texas and visit my brother in Savannah every year (oh the crab shacks on the way to Tybee Island and Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House) this is the only place in town that gets collards right...though they use yellow corn grits (polenta) rather than hominy, they're still good.

          Hello - I had my first experience with Southern food this past Oct. when I took a trip to Savannah, GA. When I got back, I was on the hunt for collard greens - I just loved 'em. I found just what I was looking for at Brassa. They have collard greens with smoked turkey. They also have good corn bread with honey butter and cheese grits.

            Favor Cafe 913 W. Lake St. Wasn't great the night I went. They have a to go menu on the
            website.

                Just need to delete the "." at the end of it when it comes up in your browser...

                  On the Favor Cafe website, the link to the menu from the picture is in fact broken. The link to the menu from the sidebar on the left works, though.
