This family owned restaurant has been handed down through generations. Tucked away on Decatur Street, it appeared to be popular. While there was never really a line, the restaurant was filled. The service was attentive from the greeting at the door to the wait staff to the owner walking throughout the restaurant welcoming and conversing with the patrons. Dinner is served from 5 ten 10 in the evenings and they specialize in Creole cuisine.The Creole Rabbit was tender and from an old recipe. While it is normally served with an oyster sauce, this was omitted without any problems due to a shellfish allergy. The Shrimp Creole was from a recipe that it is more than 100 years old. Not too spicy, it was quite enjoyable. Appetizers included new potatoes with caviar (a unique dish), and pecan breaded oysters. Also on the menu are broiled catfish, roasted breast of duck, gumbo, and even a vegetarian pasta. It is worth looking at for a fancy restaurant without the formal attitude.
