We walked in during Happy Hour where the bar was selling drinks at half price. On the other side of the bar, separated by a half wall is the dining area. Lights are dimmed during dinner hours and provide a nice and romantic setting for dinner service.
For our food selection, we decided to try their 3-course fixe prix menu. For under $15, you get a hefty size salad to start with, an entree and dessert. For entrees, you get a choice of three traditional creole/ cajun dishes including jambalaya, panfried catfish or southern fried chicken with waffles. For dessert, you have a choice of peach cobbler or a serving of beignets.
The salad was fresh with spring mix and carrots. Plentiful of greens for salad lovers. My southern fried chicken was nicely battered and fried. Delicious. I especially love the waffles which were not the breakfast variety. Instead they were stuffed with spinach. They provided two kinds of syrup for me to try, a maple blend and a cajun styled syrup. Both were equally good and it made my dish, both sweet and savoury at the same time.
I wanted to try the peach cobbler but I enjoy beignets more. If you haven't had beignets, you have to. Beignets are basically french for donuts, fried dough with icing sugar sprinkled on them after they are strained from the hot oil. Live music consists of a piano man singing Broadway tunes such as All I ask of you from the Phantom of the Opera and more.
I give Encore ***+ and a spend limit of $$.
