Dining Guide

Lately our dishes at this revered spot have been, for the most part, spot-on: a pile of sweet blue crab fingers in an herby broth with a bit of jalapeño; luscious little towers of charred corn on the cob sporting cheese, corn bread crumbles, lime, cilantro, and  mayo; a filet of snapper atop lettuces, dill, peanuts, and rice noodles. The only disappointing dish proved to be the priciest, at $44: a cornmeal-crusted pork chop served off the bone with corn maque choux and a Creole mustard vinaigrette; though the meat itself tasted fine, it was hard to find amid large chunks of fat. Service was a bit spotty, though we do like the somewhat quieter, rustic little room off the main area.
