I've been wanting to this quaint little place beside Honest Ed's for a while. back 3 years ago, Alexey and I bought some spicy bbq sauce from the Hot and Spicy Festival from Southern Accent. I looked up the place, and especially since Cluck, Grunt and Low closed down, I was looking for a place where we can have slow cooked southern food.
I've been in the area before, and this small multileveled house, all lit up with lights, has so much character. I would love to come here again in the summer.
We got there, and the hostess took us up thru the winding staircases and narrow hallways up to a room which housed about 15 people. All lit up and decorated for Mardi Gras, it was colourful and festive. We sat in an intimate corner, with a curtain hanging up overhead. It was quite romantic.
The server was friendly and talkative.
They have an in-house pyschic (which you have to book before hand). It was $30 for one reading.
It was interesting, and I'm always skeptical about these things. She told me some things that I would like to hear, who knows if it will be true. But it was fun.
The food itself, was good, but I can't say it was spectacular. I'd come again, maybe in the summer. I would imagine their winter/summer licious menu would be good.
Unfortunately, all the lighting in there was red/orange, so my pictures were all red !!
I got the Braised Beef. It was tender and the mashed potatoes were good.
Alexey got the blackened spicy chicken. A little dry, but good, it came with some dipping yogurt.
The dessert, we got the bread pudding. YUM.
