    Brunch is the best. And if you wake up for brunch on Saturday and crave delicious, fresh, local gourmet food, look no further than Streetkitchen.

    My selection on a cold, sunny Saturday was “The Terrible Councel.” A good size portion of fried chicken over smoked gouda grits, jalepeno creamed corn and fried leeks as a garnish and an egg. I’m not big on runny eggs, which is why I won’t ever be a “true foodie.” but my brunch companion gladly slid the egg onto their plate.

    The fried chicken was moist and well battered. The crunch from the chicken offset the creaminess of the grits. When I ordered, I overlooked the creamed corn, so I was surprised to see it, but oh so happy when it added even more texture and the jalepenos gave a little heat to the dish.

    As Streetkitchen continues its evolution (the build-out of their brick and mortar kitchen looks wonderful), there will be more opportunities for meals like this, and nothing makes me happier.
