I visited for lunch but will be back for their dinner
The onion soup is very rich coz the cheese. The onion is very sweet but some still have its crunch. They are caramelized to perfection. The bread on top soles up the perfect amount of the broth. The broth is a flavor filled beaf with the onion as an undertone. The cheese is slightly sharp do to it being aged.
I have had French onion soup all over but this is the richest and most hardy one I have ever had
The po boy is on a fresh torta roll that has been hallowed out then toasted with garlic butter.
Then filled with crispy Shrimp that for seasoned with minimal paprika and onion powder and fried very lightly.
They have a smoky chipotle ranch sauce that they call a remoulade on top of them followed by a tomato and lettuce on the bottom of the roll.
