Old Lady Gang
When we want to pretend that we’re actually part of Mama Joyce, Aunt Nora, and Aunt Bertha’s fam, we head to Old Lady Gang. We can’t help but feel like kinfolk when a plate of juicy baked chicken doused in a thick brown gravy hits the table. This Castleberry Hill spot serves up other Southern favorites like hot cornbread topped with brown sugar and shrimp and grits with a vodka sauce that should absolutely be in every dish since it’s that good. While you may not see Kandi, who also owns Blaze, it’s not unusual to see an OLG member patrolling the casual dining room asking how your meal is. Just offer them a playful “bravo,” and then happily go back to eating and humming to the joint’s R&B-heavy playlist.
