Here's how to navigate Sissy's, the saccharine sweet Southern love fest from restaurant newcomer Lisa Garza. Grab two or three friends and sit at the gorgeous marble bar. Order a bready Abita amber or one of those stunning, spicy margaritas garnished with a flower blossom. Then order a bucket of chicken and a bottle of that housemade hot sauce for every hand. Stick to basics for sides: whipped potatoes, mac and cheese, Texas caviar and leathery collard greens, which wake up nicely with a touch of lemon or vinegar. Practice restraint if you want to make it through dessert. Bread pudding brings a soft, custardy, jiggling, car battery-sized piece of lead, topped with candied nuts and drizzled with crème Anglaise. Chocolate cake claims to be better than sex, which is nuts, but it’s still pretty good.
