Brenda's French Soul Food

Creole | Tenderloin

Folks with “big appetites” like this New Orleans–style soul food joint in the Tenderloin, citing “exceptional” dishes like its “divine” shrimp and grits and “out-of-this-world” beignets; “cheap” tabs and a no-rezzie rule make for “long waits” (“judging by the lines, you’d think it was free”), but fans insist it’s so “worth it.”
