It was yummy and thriving, seemingly, and now it is gone. Now who has the best biscuits and gravy? B.A.G. Fan Hungry replies: The closure of Sammie Sue's and the loss of the yummy biscuits and gravy served therein has caused much local wailing and gnashing of teeth; you are not alone, friend. Why? the citizenry cry. I spoke with Sammie Sue herself, who said that she decided to sell the restaurant after she hurt her leg, making the daily operations of the business difficult for her; she seems to be in good spirits, however, and she knows a lot of people miss her b. 'n' g. Sammie Sue reports having had a plate of "wonderful" biscuits with gravy of the mushroom variety recently at the Globe Cafe (1531 14th E., 324-9915), and she certainly is the expert. The former Sammie Sue's space is now home to 1200 Bistro & Lounge (1200 E. Pike, 320-1200), quite favorably reviewed in this paper last month and by all accounts a trove of tasty, stylish food and beverages and the men (mostly) who love them (and each other). Thirsty replies: Run with your legs to Glo's (1621 E. Olive Way, 324-2577)! Hope that it is a special day with the biscuits and mushroom gravy special on the specials board! Eat! Also Hattie's Hat (5231 Ballard N.W., 784-0175)! Weekend brunch! I love biscuits and gravy at Hattie's Hat! Also a bloody Mary! Makes you feel better! Also the smoked salmon Benedict is crazy-making! In that it will make you crazy with its goodness! Amigos, If you are going to tell us what pozole is [Hungry & Thirsty, Dec. 27, 2001], you should spell it correctly. I know this may seem petty, but I thought you should know. Saludos, Stephanie Diaz Hungry replies: Estimada Srta. Diaz, le quiero dar las gracias por su correspondencia. En cuanto se trata a la gramᴩca espa�, no se puede aguantar los errores, aunque sean peque� Tiene usted raz�on la aserci�ue "pozole" es un deletreo mas tradicional, y entonces, discutiblemente la forma mas correcta. En eso queda la polemica. Sin embargo, le quiero recordar que "posole" esta tambi鮠reconocida por la Real Academica Espa� como deletreo correcto. Thirsty replies: De todas formas, le doy mil gracias por su atenci� los detalles y quiero que sepa que es usted exactamente el tipo de lectora inteligente y refinada que apreciamos.
