THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Braddock's Restaurant Review

: Named after the chef-owner, Braddock's does things the old-fashioned way, making everything but the bread from scratch. But that's not all that keeps 'em coming to this bright, airy Grandview-area space. The stars are Michael Braddock's take on American regional favorites, beginning with his personal passion for Carolina low-country cooking. Braddock knows what to do with his on-site smokers: season the critter, do it thoroughly, but don't overdo it. Braddock also knows pork. That's why you can count on anything having to do with smoked pork, such as the cinnamon-grilled pork chop or the pork tenderloin. One gets added seasoning from a spicy jalapeƱo-peach jam, the other from an equally flavorful tomato and corn chutney. Needless to say, the mashed potatoes that come with these are the real thing. They also know their way around seafood here: the crabcakes are made with well-seasoned crab meat, the seared shrimp seem to jump into their bed of grits, and the small oyster bar at the rear of the restaurant delivers. The American wine list is often very pricey, but you can save up for a bottle by coming early (before 6 PM) and ordering the $14.99 prix fixe menu.
