Greg Metcalfe, Southern Comforts Restaurant and Bakery

I know you do wonderful catering for weddings and parties.Who catered your wedding? Was it hard to let someone else do the work? 

Our wedding was catered by a friend of mine who had a catering service with a mobile kitchen. Our reception was in a tent on our lawn in Lake Wylie, South Carolina. He served 150 people with a choice of two entrees – Prime Rib and Chicken Dijon. It was fabulous, and he did a wonderful job. And no it was not hard at all! It was nice to have someone else do the cooking.

I know you and your wife work together. How long have you been married?

How has working together strengthened your marriage?We’ve been married for 20 years. It’s easy – she calls the shots, and I follow her lead! Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?

What is your favorite dish to prepare? What’s your wife’s favorite dish?

Believe it or not, my favorite dish is lasagna. My family loves it, and so do I – five cheeses, Italian sausage and ground chuck with our family’s house sauce. My wife married a Chef, so she does the baking. Her favorite is her carrot cake, and it’s fabulous.I’m coming to Southern Comforts for dinner; what do I have to try?Our most popular dish here at Southern Comforts is the buttermilk fried chicken served on a bed of warm blue cheese slaw and topped with pepper milk gravy. I would suggest either the collards (which some would say are the best around) or the corn fritter casserole as your side. We won Best of the Taste of Charlotte out of 47 other restaurants back in 2008 with that dish. Of course, our menu is rather large, and everything we make is homemade and fresh, so I am sure there is something that would satisfy your taste buds!

Visit Greg at Southern Comforts Restaurant and Bakery at 13089 Ocean Highway, at the South Litchfield traffic light or call 843-314-9369. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday, 11am–10 pm and Sunday, 10 am–2 pm.
