I was warmly welcomed by JoAnn Clevenger, the owner, and my waiter Mark R. I'd heard about this restaurant for years, but had never tried it. I was taking a yoga class nearby, so decided it was a good time to do so. Oh, my goodness. I was nestled into a cozy table in an art-decorated dining room and presented with a menu of several wonderful-sounding choices. So, I asked Mark for recommendations. We started with the Crispy Oysters St. Claude, moving on to the Cane River Country Shrimp Sauté and ending with creme brulee. The oysters sat on tiny puddles of a wonderful red sauce. The shrimp were cooked with mushrooms, bacon and garlic and served over creamy grits I was so glad my yoga class had been a rigorous one so I could eat all those calories without too much guilt! I'd taken the street car up, but decided to walk much of the way back to my hotel in order to burn up a few more calories.
