We can't even talk about this menu without our mouths beginning to water!
Is there anything more comforting or soul-satisfying than the cuisine of the South, here in the States? There's a unctuousness released into the classic dishes that can only come from the amount of time and love it takes to produce truly outstanding Southern Soul Food. Enter: The Pleasure Principle's™ Southern Classics Menu.


We'll start with:
2- hour braised Collard Greens. Slow cooked and seasoned with smoked turkey tails, shallots, garlic and little bit of apple cider vinegar.

The main course:
Shrimp and Grits. Super creamy, white polenta - really flecks of ground corn meal held together with cream and white cheddar cheese; seasoned simply with salt and coarse-ground black pepper. Jumbo, Gulf shrimp - cajun seasoned and grilled to perfection.

A little Sweet for the Savory:
Individual Pecan Pies. Our twist is to bake them in puff pastry to add a bit more texture and richness to this divine gift from the South. Delicious pecans, coated in a boozy bourbon caramel and topped with flakes of Maldon salt. Topped with a cool dollop of freshly whipped, vanilla cream- this dessert is out of this world!

Mint-Lemonade Sodas and Water will be served with this meal. Guests are free to BYOB and share whatever you think would pair well with this menu!


Located in the beautiful and historic neighborhood of North Oakland, come for this soul-satisfyng and delicious meal that's sure to transport you to the laissez faire, laid-back land of humid summer days and cool nights on a porch. You'll love the food and the company - join us!
