Omnivore - Looking for money and luck?
Daddy D'z in Grant Park is serving a special New Year's Day plate today with pork, collard greens and black eyed peas. We stopped in to get our New Year's Day luck on. The pork was smoky, tender and delicious as always, but some of the sides seemed to have changed quite a bit since my last visit, probably about six months ago. The collards didn't seem as balanced and tangy, and the mac and cheese was less fluffy and cheesy, and more greasy. Even the sauce seemed a little different to me - sweeter, less tangy and not as spicy. But I still say they know how to handle pork better than anyone else in town, and the atmosphere makes me happy every time.
