A San Francisco establishment, that years ago, authenticated the New Orleans culinary delights
and reminded us of the joys of eating down-home style at Café do Monde, Felix's, Antoine's, is tired.
Devil eggs, six halves ($6.00), tasty with a classic mayonnaise based creamy filling. Cajun fries, ($5.00), chili peppered, crisp, worth eating. Kale salad, ($11.00), fresh seemingly slightly cooked, chilled and served with herbs. Good!......Hush puppies, ($9.00), corn meal, shell fish, over- cooked and oily. Gumbo, ($24.50), mushy, seemed like it stayed dormant in a pot for a brief vacation. The stew was like a weak tasteless soup. Jambalaya, ($25.00), similar to the Gumbo, mushy rice, standing around a pot waiting to be served. The Beignet, 2 for $7.50 lacked the light freshness that a du Monde sample should be and served as a heavy overcooked cupcake with a dollop of ice cream.. The food needs to be fresher, the service lacks education and this place is tired. Management should be made aware. Good bar, nice surroundings, good lower Pacific Heights location. We were disappointed. Returning to the Elite would be difficult.
