Made a second visit a couple nights after my first.

At least with respect to the Shrimp Creole ($16) I had on the second visit, my CH comments on 10/5 regarding the absence of adequate seasoning do not apply. This dish had some bite. If only they shared the love with the other dishes.

Also enjoyed the trio of house made sausages ($8), andouille, chaurice, & duck, with the andouille the standout, all pink and smokey. The oysters gratinee ($10/half dozen) had the nice topping of crunchy bread crumbs and maintained their brineiness, but the indicated "crawfish tail, cream & cognac" were not particularly noticeable. Have to admit to a lack of expertise on how a perfect "gratinee" should be presented, though I believe the term only applies to a quick-broiled topping of cheese or bread crumbs, not to any other elements of a dish.

The standouts were the "croque monsieur" salad (again--see prior post from 10/5) and "Melissa's Seasonal Sundae" ($6), an amalgam of chocolate items (ice cream and sauce) and marshamallow cream in a LARGE sundae glass. I guess chocolate is always in season.
