“[I had] a kind of elegant bowl of grits of ground corn with a garnish of popcorn. That was one of many beautiful dishes in a night. The ballsiness of [chef-owner Daniel] Patterson and elegance of his cooking in one dish: I admired the heck out of that. “I’m going to serve you grits with an ancient native American pedigree and serve it with something you already recognize.” — Southern food expert John T. Edge regarding a meal he had at Coi while in town for the S.F. Street Food Festival last month. [KQED]
