Feelings Cafe Restaurant Review

: This Old New Orleans-style restaurant is housed in an early-1800s brick-and-masonry cottage with a picturesque, romantic little courtyard. Dinner offers a respectable selection of small and mid-size plates, including such appetizer-like fare as deviled eggs and chicken liver mousse, or more substantial morsels such as sweetbreads and frogs’ legs, duck confit or sautéed drum. The wine list is appropriate for the size of the place 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 strawberry shortcake) 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.
