Opened earlier this year in Fondren Village (2947 Old Canton Rd Suite G), Cosmopolitan Catering by Macy (Chester) is a product of homegrown tradition. Chester’s mother, Terry Chester, says the recipes have been passed down from her great grandmother to present times with freshness in mind. “It’s all from scratch”, Terry says, mentioning their desserts, salad dressings, and delicious lunch specials. Like today’s baby back ribs or chicken enchiladas. The favorite, sweet and sour green beans, are just one of the choices you get for your two sides. Plate lunches are around $10 with drink and dessert extra. Salads start around $7.

Cosmopolitan Cafe is open Tuesday – Friday, 11-2, and is in the space once occupied by Social Agenda (who moved to Mitchell Street earlier this year). Find them on Facebook for daily specials.
