For the first time, Miss Shirley’s in Roland Park will be offering four dinner entrées until 6 p.m. on Easter Sunday, April 12. The prices haven’t been determined yet, but the choices are:
Benne-seed fried chicken with sweet potato mash and collards.
Grilled ham steak with a pineapple-brown-sugar glaze with savory grits and collards.
Jumbo lump crab cake with roasted-corn-and-tomato relish and asparagus.
Grilled beef tenderloin with rosemary roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus.
The restaurant opens at 7:30 a.m. and the specials, in addition to the regular lunch and breakfast items, will be available all day, even if you have a hankering for fried chicken or steak at 8 a.m., says Brigitte, the restaurant’s chef.
And why will I be there? It has to do with being the Easter bunny. The chef is my daughter and it’s the only way I’ll get to see her and give her an Easter basket that day. She's partial to chocolate-covered peanut-butter eggs. I can’t wait.
