    The Cynical Cook

    June 2009

    One of the top 10 steakhouses of 2008 by Gayot Guides, one of America's top restaurants according to Bon Appetit, and a feature in Alton Brown's "Feasting on Asphalt"; normally these sort of accolades are awarded to a 150 year cornerstone of cuisine in Chicago or New York, but not this time.

    April 2005

    Located in Greenville on Nelson Street—once the epicenter of Delta Blues culture—Doe's Eat Place tells the complicated story of Italian immigration, Delta foodways, and Mississippi social history.

    Although Mississippi might be better known for its barbecue than for its steak, Doe's Eat Place is justifiably famous. A 1941-vintage restaurant located in a converted grocery store, Doe's has earned praise for its broiled steaks.
