Feelings Cafe Restaurant Review

: An early-1800s brick-and-masonry cottage with a picturesque, romantic little courtyard houses this Old New Orleans-style restaurant. Dinner is a hearty affair, often beginning with golden fried soft-shell crawfish with Italian seasonings served over avocado butter; crab and crawfish cakes; and moving to a leafy salad with Mandarin oranges and almonds. The chef excels with such rich meat entrées as pork medallions in Creole mustard with peppercorns. Chicken Clemenceau is a signature dish, the meat pan-sautéed with garlic butter, and topped with fresh mushrooms and peas. The wine list is appropriate for the size of the restaurant and the menu; look for a strong assortment of hearty reds and just enough “medium-weight” whites. The ambience begs you to stay a while and enjoy dessert (try the French silk pie) or after-dinner drinks. By the way, if you have the urge to belt out a tune in public, stop by the piano lounge and sing to your heart’s content.
