THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fuzzy's Place Restaurant Review

: Jefferson Michael "Fuzzy" Cawthon passed away in 2006, leaving his brother Chris and longtime bartender Jerry Rooks in charge. So the beat goes on. Joe Dale, longtime Atlanta restaurateur, still consults on the cooking, which is very reasonably priced Cajun-Creole fare, the same cuisine Dale made famous at his eponymous restaurant. Good bets are the correct andouille sausage alongside well-seasoned red beans and rice and the custardy bread pudding, with its comforting bourbon sauce. Dale's signature salads are inspired by Caesars, but contain grated cheese, black and green olives and croutons atop the crispest iceberg anywhere. The richly sauced seafood Patsy, crawfish pie and crawfish etouffée are among the regular treats. To enjoy the music, arrive before 9 p.m. to secure a table, and partake of such nibbles as mussels, wings or quesadillas until 11 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on weekends.
