My friend and I came to this place at 11:30 a.m., hoping for a pleasant early lunch in what looked like a pleasant setting. What we got is a meal that we'll remember for a long time. Chez Foushee is somewhat shabbily chic on the outside but all about well-served and well-prepared food on the inside. I ordered okra gumbo, which was only fair to middling when compared with other gumbos I've had. But my friend's meal was perfect: lump crab cake, green beans, and coarsely-ground cheese grits. These quite ordinary items were so perfectly cooked and presented that they added up to a truly excellent dining experience. And then we ordered dessert: toffee pudding for me, which was very good but not great, and lemon butter cake for my friend--a dessert to end all desserts. We oohed and aahed our way through every heavenly bite, agreeing that this cake might just be the best sweet/tart thing we'd ever tasted (and we're pretty old!).
The restaurant's interior is classically simple, with lots of natural light pouring in. The service was impeccable. Our meal, including the two entrees, two desserts, and two drinks, cost about $40 and was worth every penny. Don't miss this place if you relish good food as much as I do.
