Cedar Grove Mansion is THE place to stay while visiting historic Vicksburg. And Cedar Mansion's restaurant is THE place to eat. We have visited Vicksburg since before the first riverboat casino was opened for business. Now there are three or four at last count. But Cedar Grove, in our view, still offers the most enjoyable and most satisfying dining experience. First of all, you're eating in an historic mansion that dates to the Civil War. It is romantic and comfortable and embedded in a garden-like atmosphere, not at all like a cookie-cutter restaurant. Chef Shunta Burks oversees a menu filled with southern cooking. Deep South cooking. With a little bit of Bayou and Cajun. How about lobster ravioli or seafood crab cakes or stuffed pasta shells or Cedar Grove duck wrap (jalapeno pepper stuffed with sliced duck and cream cheese wrapped in bacon and topped with Cajun sauce)? Soups? French onion soup or seafood gumbo are highly recommended. So is the Caesar salad and the garden salad, Artisan greens topped with cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses, tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, fresh onions, hickory smoked bacon, croutons, shrimp and Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing. Pasta lovers will enjoy fettuccine Alfredo or shrimp scampi or basil chicken pasta primavera or blackened seafood pasta with shrimp, crawfish and crab meat tossed in a fettuccine pasta with Cajun Pontratrain sauce with fresh grated parmesan. Seafood entrees? Try the New Orleans catfish or eight-ounce Norwegian salmon or tilapia Meuniere Amandine or eight-ounce Sushi Grade Yellowfin tuna. If you prefer beef or chicken, choose Charleston chicken or Herb grilled chicken or eight-ounce black Angus filet mignon or 14-ounce black Angus ribeye steak. Dessert anyone? Top off a wonderful evening with brandy bread pudding or chocolate lava cake or Big Brulee cheesecake or a couple of scoops of ice cream with strawberry or chocolate topping. General Grant, a friend of Klein's wife, slept here. But he didn't eat here. He would have loved the ribeye.
