So I know parking in the Quarter can be a pain in the butt. But apparently on N. Peters St there is a huge parking lot that’s $5 for the first hr and $8 for 2 hours! That is quite a deal if you’re stressed for time or lack of street spots or cannot parallel park, ahem.
The fixed prie menu was a good deal for this restaurant. 3 courses for $20. The ambience was nice, small rustic feel with still a hint of elegance to it. It was not crowded for Friday lunch. We were seated right away and our server was very friendly but not too accurate.
I had asked him about some of the first course dishes because I had my eye on the Gulf Shrimp w Vietnamese herbs, I wanted to make sure these weren’t the bitter herbs that I’m familiar with. He assured me the plate wasn’t bitter so I gave it a shot. I was first disappointed because the dish was cold shrimp (which I think would have tasted better hot), and then the herbs were bitter.
The cantaloupe sorbet was light and yet not mild. It was very flavorful and not too sweet.
