Poetry is what happens with the staff service at this restaurant. My friend and I wandered in without reservations for lunch but were treated with respect. We were wisked upstairs and into a small and beautiful room . We were served by a trio: Jazlin, David, and Billy.
We enjoyed the .25 martinis tho my friend does not drink and I am not a heavy drinker. David described our choices in drinks and helped us select.
My friend ordered the Chef Troy's Classic Creole Luncheon and I ordered the Good and Hearty. Both were price fixed and 3 courses.
My friend loved her salad of crab, lobster, and mango. Her bread pudding souffle was excellent. I Loved the lite soup du jour- a gazpacho type soup of many flavors. My dessert was something which did not appeal to me and I simply put it aside.
Server Billy noticed and asked how he could make the dessert course better. He offered a creme brulee and I accepted. Ahhhh, it was heaven. My goodness. The creme brulee was made in a large(maybe 6 inches in diameter)very shallow dish. The entire surface was, of course, the divine sugar crust. On top, there was a fleur de lis! It was excellent. My friend, who is not the sugar fan I am, thought it excellent.
Did I mention the synchronization of the staff? It was poetry to watch them pamper us. It was a two hour meal and a terrific experience.
