Cafe Reconcile Restaurant Review

: Local church leaders sought to establish a restaurant with a mission: to serve as a job-training program giving at-risk youth real experience in the hospitality industry and help them get their lives on track. The result is Café Reconcile. A $6 million renovation expanded the square footage from 2,400 to 17,000 and significantly brightened the place. Now, everybody from power-lunchers to ladies who lunch and curious tourists pack the café to sample the fried catfish, smothered pork chops, crawfish bisque and shrimp Creole. Chicken salad is made from the whole bird, dark meat included, and we know people who don't eat roast beef po' boys anyplace else. Daily specials include Thursday’s creamy white beans with shrimp, and the chicken and sausage gumbo is one to remember. You'll want the bananas Foster bread pudding for dessert. Service is friendly, and much better than you might expect from a training environment.
