Pier 247's brunch menu uses the words "creamy" and "grits" six times, and "bacon" appears seven times. And while much can be said for restraint when it comes to food, Pier 247's offerings suggest that the best way to be abstemious is to moderate the amount of food you are eating that is not cloaked in creamy, fatted sauce. We're talking gravy, folks. And if it's homemade gravy you're after — flour browned in a pan, the practiced strokes of a whisk — Pier 247 has you covered. Try the chicken-fried chicken biscuit, which is barely visible beneath a sea of gravy flecked with chili and bacon. It's a salty, savory gravy and, when paired with a biscuit, is enough to turn a Yankee into someone who says "fixin' to."
