Location Description:

Chef Chris Williams comes from a culinary legacy with deep Texas roots: His great-grandmother, the namesake Lucille, was a pioneer of Southern foods who owned U.S. Smith's Famous BBQ in Fort Worth and helped establish one of the first college-level commercial foods departments in the nation at Prairie View A&M University. At his charming Museum District restaurant, Williams serves the same Southern food that Lucille did, including her "claim to fame" chili biscuits, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes and braised oxtails.
