THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Louis' Downtown Restaurant Review

: Louis’ Downtown is in the lovely Dr. Phillips house on Lake Lucerne, part of a bed-and-breakfast enclave that includes two turn-of-the-century homes and Art Deco-era apartments. It took years to finally finish the kitchen, but it was worth the wait. Chef Louis Chatham has moved in, creating innovative Southern-style cuisine. All of the dining rooms are elegant, but the big front room can be quite noisy on a busy night, so ask for one of the more intimate rooms if you want to have a quiet conversation. You’ll be welcomed and very well fed at Louis’. Dig in to the wonderful appetizers like fried green tomatoes topped with jumbo lump crabmeat with a dollop of hollandaise, or the velvety she crab soup with a touch of sherry. For a main dish, you can’t go wrong with Chef Louis’ downtown chicken and dumplings, little ravioli pillows stuffed with vegetables, served with slices of tender breast meat and a sauce of cream and butter. For a hearty appetite, the double-cut pork chop comes atop collard greens with a Creole mustard sauce. Finish with a slice of Granny’s lemon cake or the decadent pecan pie. The wine cellar needs a little work, with only a modest list now available.
