Terrific story from the Dispatch:
Eugena Dade has a vision, and nothing is going to stop her - not poverty, not illness and certainly not the naysayers who think opening a restaurant in a downtrodden neighborhood is a mistake.
Smothered Gravy, a restaurant serving what Dade describes as "fine comfort food" at affordable prices, is slated to open late this week or early next week at 1114 E. Main St., near the corner of Champion Avenue.
"A lot of people don't think I can do this, but I'm moving on like a freight train," Dade said. "This is my dream. This is what I've always wanted."
The restaurant and its menu are meant to re-create old-fashioned family meals at Grandma's house.
