Nice spot, in the center of town. Great service, friendly, generous pours, very complete menus and wine list. Caesar was excellent but the veal was a disappointment. Dry, over cooked, not tender.

Make a reservation. The wedge salad was excellent. The seafood gumbo was loaded with shrimp, mussels, clams, and crab. Great sausage and incredible broth. Lovely setting.
