Need a reason to fight that wind chill? The Gravy Boat reopens today in East Rome.

Need a reason to fight that wind chill? The Gravy Boat reopens today in East Rome.

Calm before the biscuits: The Gravy Boat was still sealed up Thursday evening just before sunset but look for the line of cars to start before dawn this morning. Hometown photo.

 

Which will you order first today: The tenderloin biscuit or fried baloney? Or both?

Barring any damage from the overnight wind chill, Debbie White and crew will be dishing out biscuits, coffee and sides through noon at The Gravy Boat. The business was to open at 5 a.m. and God bless the window crew as the thermometer should be at 14 degrees (without the wind chill).

Whiter had said she’d reopen early in 2018 and had posted a Jan. 3 return. That got pushed back two days, probably because of the necessary health inspection. If so, they passed with flying colors: a perfect 100 following Thursday’s review at 1413 Dean Ave. next to Pick-o-Deli. (Public Health restaurant inspection scores).

A main stay in East Rome for years, The Gravy Boat announced its closing — a retirement, White called it — at the end of June.

 

Fan reaction was immediate — and remorseful. In November, Miller announced she’d resurrect The Gravy Boat although it ended up taking a bit longer than she had planned.
