Natchez is a historic town that prides itself on its annual pilgrimages to the many magnificent antebellum mansions that attract thousands of tourists every year. So it should be surprising to learn that of the four leading restaurants, three of them are located within three of the most outstanding mansions. One of them is the Castle Restaurant and Pub at Dunleith Historic Inn, which is located at 84 Homochitto Street. Enjoy breakfast or brunch or lunch or dinner or cocktails or after-dinner drinks at the restaurant or pub, which are housed in the carriage house and horse stables that date to the 1790s. It's an intimate, romantic, brick walls and white tablecloth atmosphere that takes you back to the Civil War era. And it's Southern and Creole and Cajun cooking at its absolute best. Try the seafood gumbo with crab meat, crawfish, Gulf shrimp and steamed Louisiana rice. Or the sweet potato pancake with pork belly. Or the crawfish boil fritters. Or the organic grit fries with fried Oysters Rockefeller. Or the Castle's signature appetizer, "The Godchaux," with consists of jumbo lump crab, boiled jumbo Gulf shrimp, Romaine lettuce, Remoulade, capers, egg, tomato and purple onion. On, my. And that's only the appetizers. For entrees, my wife and I chose the Raines Farm Wagyu 10-ounce New York strip and the Ruby Red Shrimp Alfredo, sauteed shrimp with roasted garlic parmesan and Romano cheese Alfredo with fettuccine and grilled flat bread. For dessert, we shared a big bowl of classic creme brulee with fresh berries. No disappointments here, only raving reviews.
