Ernst Cafe Restaurant Review

: This Warehouse District tavern shines during its bustling after-work cocktail scene and late at night when its full-service kitchen can prove providential to hungry drinkers. Order a quaff from the lengthy brew list (over four dozen selections) to enjoy along with a po’ boy, especially one with shrimp. Home-style main courses (red beans, baked macaroni, fried shrimp) provide sustenance primarily for bar patrons. Most of the other options are comfort food renditions of such all-American dishes as chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and fried fish with french fries. Desserts are hit or miss, but nothing extraordinary. Service is adequate at best.
