New restaurant in the old Iris space, opened by the Que Crawl guys.

Fantastic. Compact menu of small plates and mains, extremely reasonable pricing, and a great dining experience. Definitely check it out.

    1. Definitely check it out. At the old Iris location on Jeannette Street. Great food, service, plates, the whole thing without a big price.

        1. Went Saturday and had a butt kicking, honest food experience. An amuse arrived which was a small chicken "frenched" chicken wing with a hoisin sauce and pickled veg. Really explosive flavors. Then the collards with grits fries. These are made by using the stock, jus, and drippings of all the meats smoked and cooked in house. Really delicious, especially with the tart spicy house made vinegar. Then the blackened shrimp over grits cake with house made bacon vinaigrette (tired of hearing house made on everything?). Good, but flavors were a little lost.
          Fried Boudin balls. Silken almost creamy boudin encassed in a masa flour breading with a garlic aioli.. Very light and very good. Then the grilled caesar salad. Delicious.
          Dessert was fries and the chocolate and thai chili cake. The latter was more like a brownie baked inside a pastry shell. The former were simply astonishingly good fries with garlic butter and parmesan.

          1. We went for dinner last night. Couldn't believe how inexpensive the offerings were! Was hoping to see the po-boys on the dinner menu, but alas, no. We shared the boudin balls, shrimp and grits and fries for the small plate, and the pulled pork entree. Despite being packed, service was reasonably fast. And there's no corkage fee. This will now be on the shortlist for a reliable night out or a place to take friends for good southern food.
