It had been many years since I'd eaten here. I had an appetizer with a combination of mussels and shrimp in a N.O. BBQ shrimp sauce that was incredible and a beet salad. Coconut cake for desert was also very special.

Love the Bree soup, grilled oysters and steaks. All the food is good, just a bit pricey. Bar is great! They could easily draw a bar crowd if they wanted the business. The bar area is spacious and beautiful.
