Neighborhood Eats: Creme

Whether you’re at this hip hangout for a late dinner or weekend brunch, chef Terrell Danley offers Modern Southern comfort: glorious caramelized pork over tangy lima beans, real-deal shrimp ’n’ grits, tomatoes in puff pastry inspired by Oprah Winfrey, and luscious Manchego-topped mushrooms. The steely-cool space might not make you think of Mama at the stove, but a few bites in you’ll be sopping up sauce with a smile.
