    The biscuit bread pudding takes 20 minutes to make, so order it when you order your entree. It is delicious.

    Go to the bar for happy hour and then walk into the restaurant for food at night- laid-back atmosphere but expensive. Think casual brennans or commanders palace

    They have, hands down, the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever drunk—and I should say eaten, since the garnishes (including pickled okra) were almost a meal. Read more

    Beware - if the beignet maker is out or they run of an ingredient, no one gets beignets for the day. There's a point of making them fresh in-house, but if they're out, no one procures them elsewhere.
