Imagine an endless buffet of home cooking—a colorful feast with something for everyone, regardless of taste or preference. What you might have in mind is a little bit like Tootsie’s Hot & Cold Buffet. Every morning, Tootsie’s cooks up a selection of homey dishes like fried chicken, sausage with peppers and onions, baked ziti, and pepper steak. The hot bar changes every day, so you’ll find collard greens, sweet potatoes, meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy. There’s banana split cake and other sweets, too. And, if you’re after a salad, there’s an endless array of vegetables: cucumber, carrots, beets, and broccoli florets to name a few. To top off your salad? Carafes of dressing for every palate. Everything is priced by weight, so visitors can help themselves to just a little bit, or some for lunch and dinner later. Wish you had gotten more? Don’t worry. Tootsie will be back tomorrow, serving up your next meal, be it hot or cool.
