Dining Review: DeJavu
Published 2/27/2014 at 11:29 a.m. 0 comments
It’s not, and has never been, a solely New Orleans-style restaurant. It’s even billed as a Creole-soul-vegetarian restaurant, but the notion that DeJavu is Cajun food persists. Yes, there’s gumbo; ditto for jambalaya. But there’s some fine home cooking coming ...

This is the everyday, sandwich-and-a-beer place that, when done right, everyone loves. And while it comes as no surprise, it couldn’t be done any better than The Second Line.

Give the kids their frozen yogurt dispensers; there are machines pumping out pours of wine at Greencork in Cooper-Young. The city’s first self-serve wine bar opened in September and has steadily added small plates to its abbreviated but well-considered menu.

Stepping into the former Neely’s Barbecue Restaurant on Jefferson feels, for a moment, like entering a little place on the Left Bank of Paris. Soft French music plays, there is a cheerful “Bonjour!” greeting at the door, and the floor ...

Dining Review: High Point Pizza

High Point Pizza is one of those places I’ve planned to go to for a long time. It’s even one of those places I thought I’d already visited, but memory is fallible. What I know is that now that I’ve ...

Dining Review: The Half Shell

The menu has evolved over the years, and today it’s a big one, still heavy on seafood but punctuated with steaks, chicken, sandwiches, salads and so on. There’s a good selection of brunch items, and that seems a good place ...
