Muriel's Jackson Square Restaurant Review: Muriel's began life as a spaghetti factory on a picturesque corner of Jackson Square. Housed in an old, two-story stucco structure, it offers two large ground-floor rooms, festooned with a hodgepodge of antique prints and signs. The neo-Creole cuisine includes a seafood gumbo that has just the right smoky taste and hits the proper earthy notes. We also recommend the Gorgonzola prosciutto tart appetizer and the wood-grilled eggplant roulade with three cheeses. A blackened Louisiana redfish is stuffed with peppery crab, while tender tournedos of beef are wood-grilled and served with a Yukon Gold stuffed potato. For dessert, indulge in black bottom butterscotch pudding over house-made praline cookies. Chef Gus Martin has worked in some of the finest kitchens in the city and it shows. Muriel’s wine list offers everything from a straightforward, full-bodied Russian River Pinot Noir to a well-blended Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
