Elite Cafe Restaurant Review

: At this historic Fillmore Street space, which has housed restaurants since 1928, South Carolina-bred, New York City-trained chef James London prepares Southern favorites such as johnnycakes, jambalaya, gumbo, biscuits and pecan pie. (As an extra plus, many dishes --- even pancakes --- can be made gluten-free.) The wine list favors California labels and fortified wines to pair with dessert; other drinkables include beers on tap and Southern-inspired cocktails such as a spicy Cajun martini.
