Incredible Food
by BugAC on 7/14/14
Me and the wife went to D&J's this weekend for our anniversary. I've always liked the place, and it has a special meaning behind it for us. However, this weekend, the food was some of the best I've ever had.

For starters i got the Escargot - Sautéed escargot, smoked bacon, wild mushrooms in garlic butter and the wife got the Fried Green Tomatoes - Crisp fried, green tomatoes, louisiana lump crabmeat, dill remoulade.
This was my first time ever having escargot and they were incredible. I'm still thinking of how great they were. An incredible earthy-ness to them. The mushrooms paired with them took it over the top.
The wife's fried green tomatoes were very good to.

For the entree i got the Pan seared salmon wrapped with smoked salmon with brussel sprouts. This was even better. The salmon was absolutely perfect and incredible, but the brussel sprouts were amazing. It was my first time eating brussel sprouts too. The whole dish was just the perfect mix of flavor. Each bite left me finding new flavors. With this, i also ordered the Smothered Greens - Hearty greens, caramelized red onion, bacon, cane vinegar. This went very well with my dish and i really enjoyed it.

The wife got the Gulf Fish - Pan roasted flounder, louisiana pecan risotto, savory praline sauce, fresh arugula. I didn't try it, but she said it was very good.

Overall, it was probably one of the best meals i've had in a long time.

Great stop.

The environment was local and friendly. This is a definite recommendable place. Watch out for the cocktails though, they pack a punch. After that, I would suggest the fried green tomatoes with crab cakes for appetizers. Scrumptious was the New Orleans style barbeque shrimp. The lamb chop wasn’t cared for but grits added to both entrees, were tasty.

Quaint Neighborhood Restaurant with a Comfortable Feel
by Mr. Geaux on 1/29/10
Located in an old grocery store/po-boy shop, this is a quaint neighborhood restaurant with a comfortable feel. For what it’s worth, the restaurant description on the website is outdated as Dick and Jenny no longer operate the restaurant.

The restaurant has an interesting menu which made our choices difficult. The seafood gumbo was added to the menu and was very good. To address the choice issue, I tried the entrée that includes three appetizers (Fried Eggplant & Crabmeat Napoleon; Roasted Portobello & Blue Cheese Cheesecake; and Corn Fried Louisiana Oysters with Remoulade Sauce). All were very good, but the Eggplant and Crabmeat Napoleon was my favorite. We also tried the New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp and Grits which was very good.
