Yesterday I was taking my dog for a walk downtown Appleton and I stumbled on something exciting! A cool new restaurant opening next month, tucked away just off of College Avenue behind Acoca Coffee Shop, aptly named The Cozzy Corner.
The neon writing in the window spoke to my soul like good ol’ fashion southern revival – “BBQ Ribs, Fried Chicken, Cornbread”! Bust out the cast iron, Appleton’s getting some down-home southern comfort food!
I was minding my own business taking photos of other people’s windows and the owners inside spotted me. They invited my dog and I in to get my opinion on the height of the booth seats and settle their debate. I thought they felt just right, so if the restaurant fails because everyone hated the seating I’ll probably have to delete this post.
The owners had their two young kids helping out and the whole family was extremely friendly. It was a lot of fun talking with them about the restaurant and I could tell they were passionate about their venture. If their passion and personality comes through in their food, this restaurant will epitomize southern hospitality.
You can’t think of comfort food without thinking of the southern classics. How can you not be excited about a mom ‘n pop joint fixin’ you up some of these rib sticking meals from scratch? You can bet I’ll be at The Cozzy Corner shortly after they open, and you can expect a review to follow. Oh, and if you check them out, please be sure to compliment them on the height of the booth seats.
P.S. Restaurateurs – It pays to be nice to strangers, you never know when you are entertaining a food blogger.
