Last night three Divas and I headed out for a much over due Girls Night Out. Kristy suggested we check out the relatively new Five Sisters Blues Cafe. (I would also like to point out how impressed I am that this restaurant has it’s own website… kudos to whomever is in charge of your social media and online presence!!)
Five Sisters was inspired by the owner’s mother and her four sisters – Jeannette, Cora, Sarah, Dorothy and Margaret. All of the dishes are from the Sisters’ recipes, such as “Aunt Cora’s Crab Cakes” and “Aunt Dorothy’s Pot Roast.” Their tagline- “Inspired by talent, infused with soul” – could not be more perfect.
We arrived around 6:30 and the place was filling up, but we got a great table close enough to the live entertainment, but where we could still talk without having to scream at each other. The decor is beautiful (I should have taken more pictures) with paintings that remind you of the “Old South” just adding to the charm of the whole place.
I was SUPER impressed that they stock a terrific Moscato – they of course got enormous points for that from me. But the food was fantastic as well. Kristy had the Chicken Fried Steak which literally took an entire plate to hold. The meat was so tender it just fell apart with a fork. Kari had pulled pork – which I am not a fan of but this had an amazing flavor to it. Ashley had the fried chicken… best. chicken. ever. Truly.
I ordered the Sisters Sampler for my meal and added a Caesar Salad. The Sisters Sampler comes with two fried green tomatoes, two mini crab cakes, and four shrimp. The salad was served first and I have to say – it was AMAZING. They put fresh crumbled bacon on it – which I would never have thought of – and it was the perfect touch to make it probably the best Caesar in town. The sampler was also great, not too spicy like I feared. I of course dipped everything in Ranch Dressing (I mean, my diet was blown, so why stop there right!?) and even their Ranch was great. (more points!)
We would have probably stayed longer had we not seen the LINE of people waiting for a table. All in all the place was fantastic, and I absolutely would recommend it to anyone.
