If there is one thing the Chester family knows, it’s good, home-style cooking. Family matriarch Terry Chester has cooking in her genes, which she passed down to her two children Macy and Chad. Macy stared her “Cosmopolitan Catering by Macy” over a year ago when a long awaited space in Fondren opened up. It was just a few short months later, after much demand for a daily lunch business, that she was able to expand and open Cosmopolitan Café in the heart of Fondren.
If you’re looking for true southern blue plate, good feeling, tummy filling goodness, look no further than Cosmopolitan Café. From pork tenderloin cooked with wood chips over a charcoal grill with a side of sweet and sour green beans to drunken chicken smoked chicken salad; this is not your ordinary lunch spot.
What brought Macy to Fondren was the sense of community and family that goes along with being a business there. “Business support each other,” she says. “You meet fun, funky, cool people from every walk of life here. It’s a real business family, which for us, as a family run-business, was important.”
From fresh farmers market produce used to make everything homemade on site, to Chad’s famous meat selections, there is truly something for every palate at Cosmopolitan Café. In fact, Chad has won numerous steak and rib grilling competitions as a young man actively involved in 4-H. Some of his personal favorites include baby back ribs and beef brisket…he’s even working on a unique burger, the “Cosmo Burger” which will debut in a few weeks.
Just make sure you save room for dessert. The homemade strawberry shortcake is to die for and the chocolate chess pie, a Chester family recipe, can hardly last through lunch.
Busy day? No time to think about dinner? Pick up a pre-made casserole which is sure to please the whole family.
If there is one thing the family at Cosmopolitan Café is bursting with creativity. Ever had a crawfish cheesecake? What about a sundried tomato, blue cheese or Mexican cheesecake?
