“Our food is made with lots of love, lots of butter, and all the southern goodness that you would expect from your comfort favorites,” she said. “We have an out-of-town feel with local flavors.”

Paul grew up in Pass Christian and graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi where she learned only 50 percent of Mississippi’s public university graduates chose to work in the Magnolia State after leaving college. Her main goal after graduation was to return to the Coast as an entrepreneur to put her education to work providing a tax base and local jobs. Her husband, Matthew Paul, a Major League Baseball certified agent, introduced his wife to Thompson. Now, two franchises later, the Paul and Thompson families are dedicated to giving back to Gulf Coast communities.
“We hope people understand that when they’re supporting Brick & Spoon they’re shopping local and supporting the vision that we have to pour support back into the Gulf
Coast,” says Paul. “We want to do everything we can to
help the Coast continue
to grow.”
The Biloxi location on Eisenhower Drive
near Edgewater Mall is celebrating its fourth anniversary in August. Paul said it offers an intimate dining and catering experience, while the Gulfport location on Crossroads Parkway is nearing the one-year mark and is slightly larger, meaning it has all the room you need to make your celebration special. You’ll enjoy the same casual atmosphere and Southern comfort food in both locations.
“We love to serve our Gulf Coast community, from day-to-day dining to events large and small,” added Thompson.
So call your friends and tell them, “Meet me at The Brick” – this will be the one call they won’t want to send to voicemail.
