WHY Skillet-fried chicken and other Southern comfort dishes served in an atmospheric old home.
WHAT Everyone loves the charm of the restored Craftsman house, but opinion is divided on Larkin Mackey’s Southern cooking. Portions are small by soul-food standards, waits for tables can be painful (no reservations), and service is typically lax. But the chicken is skillet-fried the right way, and the banana pudding is comfort in a crock. Worth checking out for eastsiders.
WHO Tastefully tattooed parents with gorgeous multiethnic toddlers, and other modern-era Eagle Rockers.
