In a neighborhood that’s constantly thrilling your appetite with new and imaginative cuisine, it’s nice to take a break with some good old-fashioned comfort food. Silver Skillet has remained virtually unchanged since they opened their doors in 1956 (and they have the photos to prove it!). While they do serve lunch, it’s their diner-style breakfast that draws a melting pot of devotees wearing everything from wingtips to hard hats. I got my greasy spoon fix with a generous plate of corned beef hash, grits, and eggs, with a towering pile of fluffy biscuits, of course. If you’ve got any room left, grab a slice of pie to go—it’s some of the South’s best!
