HAPPY HOUR

Happy Hour 4pm to 6pm daily. $1 off well drinks, draft beers and $5 house red & white wines.

 

The woman on the wall fixin’ to chug a whole lot of Tennessee whiskey is the aunt of Miss Delta co-owner Nick Weitz. In fact, all the people in all the photos on all the walls—save for the big one of Elvis—are relatives of Weitz and his business partner, and Alabama native, Marcus Oliver. So yes, Miss Delta’s a family place, even if a fair portion of their family of guests includes the restaurant industry’s transplanted orphans looking to get their brunch on after a long night of serving tables or working the line. In a way, the spot’s made for them—and all you other late risers—because brunch lasts well into the afternoon and features hearty eats descended from the deep-seated (and deep-fried) Southern belief that only big breakfasts can properly fuel you through your day.

 

Even the standard classic combo (eggs, starch and meat) is trumped up here by way of buttermilk biscuits in lieu of toast, grits in lieu of home fries, and a long link of andouille sausage prepared just for Miss Delta by the butchers at Olympic Provisions. And while the Southern Stack sounds like a big pile of flapjacks, it’s not. Rather, it’s a formidably tasty breakfast sandwich so massive (two eggs, buttermilk-fried chicken, cheddar cheese, thick slices of bacon and sausage gravy between large buttermilk biscuit halves) that it’s served in a bowl with a serrated knife. Plus, you can even swap your stack filling for barbecue pork or a vegetarian version with tomatoes, okra and collard greens.

 

If you’re looking for something a little tamer, you can’t go wrong with Oliver’s Cajun-style jambalaya, the South’s answer to phở as a common hangover remedy. If you want to liven it up, Miss Delta bottles its own (very tasty) hot sauce. Dash some in, or just ask for the peppery house Bloody Mary, served in a pint glass with Portland’s own Hot Monkey vodka. Once you’ve settled the check, walk it off with a lazy stroll down the shady side of North Mississippi and call it a day. Brunch runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. On weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
