Dining Guide

Josie’s Kitchen

The food coming out of this little makeshift kitchen is more sophisticated than you’d anticipate. Not much to look at but nonetheless cheerful, the corrugated metal building has a walk-up window for ordering and a small, climate-controlled dining area outfitted with five or six tables covered in colorful oilcloth (a more permanent spot on the square is rumored to be in the works). Ice-filled buckets tempt with gratis beer and wine (if you want to BYOB, check out the selection at Gillen’s, next door).  Lunch is served Monday through Saturday; on offer are mostly sandwiches, from a cubano and chicken salad to a blackened shrimp po’boy and a half-pound burger. Thursday and Friday bring menu staples like shrimp and grits in a spicy butter sauce and specials like roasted salmon in herb butter atop pearl couscous and fresh spinach. Good luck trying to forgo a slice of coconut cream or Orange Creamsicle pie.
