The New York Times has released its annual list of the best restaurants to visit across the United States once again, with one of Jackson’s very own making the cut — Elvie’s.
Elvie’s first opened in February 2020 shortly before COVID-19 restrictions forced the temporary closure of countless restaurants across the state. With a lot of hard work and a lot of good food, the all-day cafe was able to reopen and offer its elegant dishes of breakfast foods, seafood, and more to residents and visitors alike.
“Meals here proceed seamlessly from New Orleans-style baked oysters to pork tonkatsu, vegetable lumpia to redfish amandine, shrimp remoulade to cacio e pepe. Chef Hunter Evans, who owns Elvie’s with his fellow Jackson native Cody McCain, brings a sure hand to these dishes, served in a tastefully restored, once-abandoned home in an emerging cosmopolitan section of Mississippi’s capital,” NYT food columnist Brett Edwards wrote.
