Comfort food with a creole twist. Pasta dishes, black beans and rice, sandwiches (including an excellent muffaletta). Most dishes are mild-to-medium in their heat.

I was pleasantly surprised at this venue, not expecting good Creole food in the middle of Virginia. The shrimp and grits were about as close to what you get in NOLA without being there. We were there for lunch and it was not crowded, but...More
