A leisurely lunch finds chef-owner Molly McCook’s work just as charming as when we indulge in the evening menu. A thick plank of toasted whole-grain batard serves as the perfect base for a salad of avocado with lemon-poached Texas shrimp and crab, decorated with sliced sweet red onion and arugula frills. With a glass of Sonoma chardonnay, this is lighthearted, satisfying indulgence. For a more substantial salad, shavings of locally farmed brussels sprouts mingle with mixed greens, nutty farro, applewood-smoked bacon, and crumbled Gorgonzola in a honey-pecan dressing with sliced blackened chicken. The savory bread pudding brings together whole-grain bread and French baguette with thyme-riddled sautéed onion, mild blue cheese, crispy pancetta, and sautéed shiitakes for a politely sinful plate. The setting, straight out of New Orleans’s Garden District, always makes us feel special.
