There’s nothing in the world quite like authentic Southern cooking. Fried chicken, mac and cheese, creamy grits — it’s the ultimate comfort food. A new eatery in the 954 is turning out all your favorites, and putting a healthy spin on this classic cuisine.
Kelvin 3200 is Oakland Park’s latest stop for SoFlo foodies. It’s an authentic Southern bistro…
Kelvin Lewis, chef: “The recipes and foods are based on family items that I grew up with. My mom being from Sumter, South Carolina and my dad from Ocala, Florida.”
The idea behind the place is simple — respect the recipes of the past, use the best products the present offers.
Kelvin Lewis: “The foods that we use here are primarily organic, wild caught, free range and also local, so farm-to-table is a huge part of what we do here.”
The modern day spin on tradition will keep your body healthy and your taste buds happy.
Kelvin Lewis: “We’ve tried to do everything so that individuals can come out, enjoy the same foods that they grew up with, without all the extra calories and fat.”
Check out this organic threesome…
After the chicken’s thoroughly prepared, it goes into the deep fryer’s peanut oil. Then it’s placed on your plate where it’s joined by mac and cheese and collard greens.
Kelvin Lewis: “That is the quintessential Southern meal, but 100 percent organic.”
Shrimp and grits are served South Carolinan-style, with bacon bits and mushrooms.
Kelvin Lewis: “We use wild-caught shrimp and we serve that on top of organic stoneground grits.”
Other organic offerings include locally-grown fried green tomatoes and mac and cheese balls served with homemade onion ranch dressing.
You can even get biscuits slathered in preservative-free sausage gravy!
Southern cooking is alive and well at Kelvin 3200.
Vicki, dining customer: “Well the Southern food I grew up on, this is basically it. It’s very good.”
