The wife thought it was awesome food however eating greasey food after drinking all day at Marti Gras was not the smartest move for her. :-) It is close to the Tremont House hotel which was handy!

I had the fried shrimp and my wife had the grilled shrimp. Both were excellent, the sides were good and the portions large. Vanche was our excellent server.
