My fellow foodie and I ordered 2 appetizers:
1. the baked blue crab w brie and chives au gratin $10. the texture was fluffy and cheesy. the cheese flavor was very dominant, especially the pecorino romano taste.
then I ordered the lunch special of the day: open-face lamb shank sandwich on top of collard greens with a side of super crispy french fries for $9. the lamb shank was moist and flavorful, the collard greens were a bit much but I loved the flavor of the gravy juice over the lamb over brioche.
my friend ordered the fish of the day: red drum fish courtbouillion with Louisiana popcorn rice, blue crab beignet and sauce piquant for $16. I’m not a huge fan of fish myself unless its salmon but the sauce was very rich and the fish texture was great. I think my favorite part of this dish was the blue crab beignet though. It was amazing.
