Percy Street Barbecue is known for ribs, brisket, and the like. Three years in at Ninth and South Streets, chef Erin O'Shea has added seafood and Southern dishes to her menu, channeling her Southern cooking roots. She gets grits from Byrd Mill in Ashland, Va. They cook all day in chicken stock with a touch of butter and salt before they're chilled overnight; the next day, cooks hit 'em with more stock, butter, and salt, and serve them with surry sausage, fried oysters, and pickled red onion ($8)

Eggs served up in charming porcelain ramekins, custard cups, or other shallow individual baking dishes make breakfast special. Compared to poaching, scrambling and other top-of-stove cooking methods for eggs, baking may require a little more time and attention. But serving eggs in the same dishes in which they're baked keeps them piping hot and can enhance the presentation. Tantalizing accompaniments and toppings for baked eggs make up for any extra effort. Tips. Here are a few ideas: To add flavor and color and help keep the egg from sticking to the dish, spoon into each baking dish a bed of pureed spinach, chopped ham, chunky tomato sauce, and/or sauteed mushrooms and onions.

In the glare of spotlights, the huge maples and tulip poplars cast menacing shadows and the night fog shrouds the Rancocas Creek in mystery. That is the view through the picture windows of Flo's Lakeside Tavern, an informal bar-restaurant that opened in Hainesport a year ago. The setting is definitely rural, both inside and out, and if your culinary expectations are not too high, Flo's offers a pleasant, off-the-beaten-path excursion. The restaurant is in a converted house flanked by beds of yellow mums and incongruously framed by piers bound with hawser.

Once Upon a Porch was an ice-cream parlor at Head House Square. It served wonderful ice cream, and people stood in line with their youngsters just to get a taste. But, unfortunately, Once Upon a Porch didn't live happily ever after. In its place, a new ice-cream parlor evolved. Which was good. Because if you felt like getting in some cool, creamy licks, you could now venture down to Head House Square and get some at Any Thyme. Alas, the new place didn't live happily ever after either.
