THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Azalea Restaurant Review

: The handsome white frame house occupied by Azalea was a blacksmith shop in the nineteenth century. Venerable old trees form a canopy over the walled brick patio that is one of the city's most popular outdoor dining scenes, especially with the suit-and-tasseled-loafers crowd. Cocktails are well-made; the long wine list has several by-the-glass selections; and the ambience recalls a relaxed, country club setting. Some dishes are definitely a cut above others. The signature whole sizzling catfish, eaten with chopsticks, is a great way to start dinner. And the coconut shrimp appetizer is a long-standing favorite. Oddly, the kitchen has a tough time with a simple burger. But the gourmet pizzas are almost uniformly good, and the daily pasta and seafood dishes are usually worthy of the name "specials." A three-course Sunday night prix-fixe is an excellent deal. On Wednesday nights, all wines by the bottle are half price.
