Now throw your hands in the air and wave ‘em like you just don’t care. Cause if you like fish and grits, to paraphrase Outkast, then Highland Kitchen is for you. Serving up comfort foods galore, this Somerville establishment also has a well-stocked bar. The desserts, like peach and blueberry shortcake or bourbon pecan pie, are sweet decadence on a plate. Sat night, enjoy soul hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s with your meal. Sun night, live country and roots rock starts at 10 pm with no cover. Fried and Frozen Mondays feature buttermilk fried chicken and frozen drink specials. Spelling Bee Tuesdays start at 9:30 pm. And Sun brunch is from 11 am until 2:30 pm, complemented by live country and bluegrass, ‘cause nothing helps digestion more than a trusty banjo and fiddle.
