True Grit: SF's Boxing Room Adds Mo' Louisiana Fixin's
By Meesha Halm
There’s something about the summer that speaks of sweet tea, grits and fried green tomatoes. And San Franciscans don’t have to travel to the south to get them some. To celebrate his restaurant’s one-year anniversary, Boxing Room chef (and 30 Under 30 phenom) Justin Simoneaux has updated the menu, adding many of his native Louisianan daily specials such as duck and sausage jambalaya, and shrimp and grits to the permanent menu.
In addition, he has updated the seasonal “Chalkboard Specials” to include summer favorites such as fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade; and crab and artichoke cakes. Personally, we can’t get enough of Southern food at brunch (maybe because it leaves us the rest of the day to work it off) and fortunately Simoneaux has plumped out the midday menus as well, with classics such as bananas fosters French toast, vegetable and andouille hash with baked eggs, and a fried chicken po’boy that joins his signature fried seafood po’boy on the lunch menu.
Now, where did we put that bottle of Abita?
