THE SANTA CLARA
February 20, 2014
With the quarter speeding to a close, it is often difficult to stop and take a break.
If you feel as though you are missing a little music in your life, perhaps some rhythm and blues will help make the final stretch a little more enjoyable.
Head to the city for the evening and enjoy a night of great entertainment and delicious soul food at Biscuits and Blues.
This restaurant, located off Union Square, is sure to excite as guests descend stairs into the basement of the establishment, which instantly transforms the night from average to awesome.
The restaurant has a unique dive-like feel and is reminiscent of a well-loved local establishment. You almost forget that you are in the heart of a major city as you take in the ambiance and are seated at a small circular table that faces the well-lit stage.
There is not a bad seat in the house nor an unappealing item on the menu. Sometimes restaurants that claim that they serve southern comfort food miss the mark considerably. Biscuits and Blues is true to its name and offers visitors excellent and scrumptious soul food that is authentic and will leave you wanting more.
Fair warning, because you are in the heart of San Francisco and in one of the most touristic places in the city, the food is a little more expensive than in Santa Clara, Calif. But if you can accept this fact and are willing to splurge a little, then your evening will be that much more enjoyable.
Some house favorites include a basket of buttermilk biscuits, southern fried chicken and Cajun catfish. The biscuits melt in your mouth, plus who doesn’t love warm, soft carbohydrates?
The southern fried chicken is covered in a flaky, golden crust and served with a side of mashed potatoes and coleslaw, creating a masterpiece of culinary comfort. And finally, the Cajun catfish is a blackened catfish fillet with a side of delicious southern succotash. Everything on the menu is completely worth the food coma that’s sure to ensue.
The blues and jazz bands that play at Biscuit and Blues vary each evening, so be sure to check out their website to see when your favorite artists are performing. Some house favorites are Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers and Earl Thoas and the Rhumboogies.
So head to the city to ignite your soul and go to Biscuit and Blues where you are guaranteed a great dinner and a show
