As if I needed another reason to visit one of Mobile’s best restaurants, our friends at The Noble South have entered into the Sunday brunch arena. I stopped by last Thursday to grab my usual deviled eggs and pickled shrimp lunch appetizers (and had forgotten how amazing the kale salad is) and found out about the new 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday hours.
The menu has some fairly traditional offerings augmented by items that are a little more progressive. Claude’s grits, hash brown casserole, farm eggs and house-made sausage patties can get almost any stomach growling. Chicken and waffles are certainly popular these days but baked eggs with veggies and cornbread sound almost as good as the frittata with blackened shrimp and maque choux. My first dish will definitely be the fried oysters Benedict, though Catherine is preparing for the tuna nicoise with the quail egg.
There are new menu items that may lure you in during other times of the day. Nashville hot chicken has become a thing in this town, and they do it with chicken hearts. The Noble South kitchen now has Isle Dauphine oysters (phenomenal). Goat with dumplings may be what’s for dinner. No matter when you get your chance, stop by The Noble South. This place is a hot spot right now!
Café 615 closes down
In other brunch news, Café 615 recently closed its doors. We will miss the food and the Sunday Champangels. Next-door neighbor Five is taking over the building. Rumor is Five is expanding its current restaurant, but I’ve not heard of any walls being knocked down just yet. Five is also a formidable brunch spot that also features live music, so maybe the more room the better. Keep an eye out.
Haberdasher brings in Good People
Tuesday, Sept. 27, the Haberdasher will open its doors at the usual 4 p.m. The difference will be that the fine folks from Good People Brewing out of Birmingham will be on hand with six different beers for a unique food pairing.
This isn’t your usual multicourse meal found at other beer dinners. The kitchen will be serving up special menu items to pair with each of the half-dozen different brews on draft. There are no set times. That menu will be available from the get-go. Expect each food item to cost between $3 and $6. Shorter pours will be available to allow diners to try as many beers as possible.
A representative from Good People Brewing will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the beer and brewery. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of dining at the Haberdasher, you are in for a treat. This isn’t just a place for finely crafted cocktails. This is a fresh take on food for Mobile.
