Food for the soul: Eliz Restaurant & Catering opens on 61S



Welcome to ELIZ (photo by Kelley Branch)

The flavors of the River City are deeply woven into our culture and sense of community. Food has become so central to our traditions, celebrations and social events that, inevitably, these local flavors become entwined with the memories and ideals that we hold closest to our hearts.

When tasting becomes a way of remembering, cooking becomes way of honoring our heritage and sharing those experiences is way of expressing our love for one another, that is the richness of soul food.

Soul food is a specialty of the Coleman family, owners of the newly opened Eliz Restaurant & Catering, where they are serving up simple, authentic Southern cooking seven days a week.

Located on Highway 61 South next to the Dollar General store, Eliz brings welcome variety to the south side of town with a short order menu of classic favorites. The Coleman’s say they plan to expand the menu in the future, until then a small, varied selection is on offer with prices from $8 to $16.

Eliz is an intimate yet inviting space that has been fully renovated and tastefully styled. Chic country accents are elevated by industrial fixtures and furnishings to create a rustic sophistication that feels both welcoming and very “Vicksburg.”

With no less than five flat screens displayed throughout the dining area, you can be sure that every seat in the house has a great view. Folks looking for a new game night spot are likely to enjoy the casual atmosphere and friendly service that can be found at Eliz.

Eliz Restaurant & Catering is open seven days a week: serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and returning 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for dinner service.  The Coleman’s say they’ll have a special soul food dinner on Sundays and folks can keep an eye on the Eat Local Facebook page for daily specials and announcements.
