THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW A PRIVATE EVENT SPACE Night of the Cookers Restaurant Review

: Named for a sixties-era Freddie Hubbard record, Night of the Cookers plays off that other meaning of “cooking’”---the jazz kind---to give Baltimoreans a sexy, urban take on traditional Southern food. The setting is old New Orleans without a drop of Fat Tuesday kitsch; its black-and-white tile floor, beveled glass, and Victorian woodwork might belong to a French Quarter chophouse. As might the food, which ranges from such bountifully portioned Creole classics as fried-oyster etouffée and jambalaya to Southern fried chicken with collards, mac ‘n’ cheese and biscuits. (Small plates are also included, but don’t believe the “small” part.) Big eaters won’t be able to resist the barbecue platters with all the trimmings. The presentation is uptown, but the service is as friendly and down-home as can be. The only things that would make an evening Big Easy-perfect would be a live jazz combo blowing away---and a tad less salt in the otherwise loveable fare.
