    Excellent creole - based food. In addition to our lunch, we got medium size take-out orders of smoked beef and rice & pigeon peas w/ham sofrito for the plane ride home. It was hard to choose side dishes because they all sounded so good.

    They have a gluten free menu - Check your plate, tho!!! When I was served the GF skewered beef tenderloin from the GF menu, they arrived on tempura'd onion strips. When I asked about the onions, my dish was quickly replaced (by a manager) with perfectly cooked skewered beef tenderloin pieces, served on top of green beans, onion and red pepper strips. The GF menu has 4-5 options in each category, except dessert, which was 2 choices. I'm so happy that they were out of the gf brulee, because we then ordered the Italian custard, which was served surrounded by strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. The custard paired perfectly with a Late Harvest Riesling and a Dow's Crusted Port. The non-gf plate was Jerk Pork, which my partner said: "It was very good. It wasn't very spicy. Very tender." I would definitely eat here again.
