Found this place using yelp reviews. Invited family on a Sunday evening. We were introduced to a $25 fixed price menu. Wasn't what I expected but a good idea to keep a short menu. Limit options. Each item should shine!
Of the three entree options, our party of 4 tried them all (Fried chicken with mashed potatoes, briney-smoked pork chops, and fish with jambalaya). We enjoyed the food and the place. Very historic. Retains the history with exposed concrete beams but has a modern, trendy feel. (Like eating in a loft.)
A few minor comments. There's no salt or pepper on the table. It's good so long as your taste buds match the kitchen staff's saltiness level. Our group was not a solid match. Appetizers (fried green tomatoes and fried okra) were not salty enough for me. My 91-year old grandma thought the pork chops were too salty. Another person thought the salt was spread unevenly over the fried chicken. Some parts were too salty. Same for the yummy mashed potatoes. I ate the fish. Although I like salt, it was on the heavy side. Not well-balanced with other spices.
If salt is not your thing, I suggest asking the kitchen to go light on the salt. Ask for some of your own salt and pepper to season your food. Of course, this one night could be an anomaly. Depends on who's taste buds are cooking!
Suggest expanding the wine list to include red dessert wines.
We'll be back!
