A small fire early Tuesday morning caused no structural damage, but smoke damage was extensive, and the restaurant will be closed for several weeks to do repairs and cleanup.
Owner Phil Lang says he hopes to be open again in as little as three weeks, and certainly by Mardi Gras, March 8.
Nancy, I think you'd really like Neon Carrot, a daytime cafe on South Higuera about a block north of TJ's on the other side of the street in a strip mall. Sign above just says "Restaurant".
Run by M Loring of hte old Park Restaurant up by the depot. Great food. Friday evening (only Fri) serves great tapas goodies. Beer and wine. House made desserts (oh, the pudding!) NOT fancy, order at counter and have it delivered to teh table. Big open room can be noisy but...the...FOOD!
I have not been for breakfast since they re-opened.
We elected to go on Sunday evening with friends from SF. They both selected the jambalaya, one with prawns, the other blackened chicken. Neither was excited about them and would not order again. I was very disappointed in the Fried Catfish , too much crust and dry, fish was okay, but on the whole not something I would order again. I may go back, but avoid on Sunday eve as there were only 6 customers and food still took 25 minutes.
