Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen, known as DCBK, serves up great southern comfort food and signature cocktails with a side of some of the best jazz in Boston. Tuesday thru Sunday, you will find a menu full of big Southern flavor, cocktails full of sublime combinations, and sounds full of rhythm and soul.

If you are in the mood for some classic Southern style dishes, be sure to stop into Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen.  They take classic dishes like meatloaf, jambalaya and pork chops and put their own spin on them. I had a chance to eat there with my husband recently and we were blown away by the whole experience.

We started with an order of cornbread Mini’s, because, well – I love cornbread.  After we devoured them, I told my husband that we should have gotten 16 more orders of them. They were warm and oh so delicious.

For the main course I got the chicken and waffles. If you haven’t had chicken and waffles before, you’re really missing out – it phenomenal. At DCBK’s they make a homemade buttermilk waffle, top it with their Glorifried boneless chicken strips and serve with butter and maple syrup. YUM.

If you noticed the drink in the above photo, that is their red wine sangria.  They make sangria in red and white wines, but I always go with red. They have a really nice craft cocktail menu there and I am looking forward to going back soon so I can try some more of them.

But back to the food….

Chris got the DCBK’S Jazzburger with Romaine lettuce, tomato and tobacco onions.  He’s a big fan of burgers, so I wasn’t surprised that he ordered that.  He loved it and said he was happy that he ordered it!

Oh, and what’s dinner without dessert? We split a piece of their Red Velvet Cake and were practically ready to lick the plate clean when we were done. It was so good!

And seriously, what’s better than live music while you enjoy a meal? Jazz music makes for a relaxing atmosphere and I truly enjoyed dining with my husband to the smooth sounds of jazz music in the background.
