The five of us had very well prepared and efficiently served meals at this site of what apparently was once a service station and now has another life. The concrete block walls are lined with framed photos of sites around the world--Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, St.Peter's Basilica, Taj Mahal, and many others--which our waiter told us were taken by friends of the owner.
We ordered as appetizers the fried green tomatoes and crab cake with cabbage, which were very good; in face, the tomatoes came and were quite small, which was not a problem, since there were five or six on the plat. Within a couple of minutes, we were brought another order with large slices, with a message of apology from the chef for the small ones. We had been perfectly satisfied with the first order, but certainly took advantage of the generosity.
Four of us had the blackened shrimp and grits, which were delicious and filling. One of our party had a gluten allergy, and the chef recommended a change in the sauce before we ordered, but when the dish arrived, there was a large slice of bread dipped into the grits--a real no-no for folks with this condition. But the waiter took the dish back and a new one was soon substituted, without the gluten. One of us had the rack of lamb, which was also very good.
With two or three glasses of wine, the bill for the five of us came to $150 plus tip,which we considered a decent value on this Thanksgiving eve. There are several very good restaurants in the area, and we will return to this one in the future.
