Brenda's French Soul Food Restaurant Review:

This sweet spot is worth a detour to an otherwise seedy corner near the Civic Center. The dining room features a spare, clean décor of mirrors, a subdued color scheme and simple wooden tables with seating for about 75. Chef Brenda Buenviaje (Sumi, Café Claude, Delessio) commands the semi-exhibition kitchen where she turns out a limited menu of French-Creole fare. New Orleans staples include fat, creamy biscuits that unfortunately sell out quickly, golden-brown beignets (stuffed versions include one with molten Ghirardelli chocolate), and savory options such as fried shrimp po’ boys and oyster-bacon hangtown fry. Specials change daily.
