This is another successful endeavor by the Blueplate Restaurant Company (no relation to H. W. Longfellow and his penciled ponderings!). In this grill, dark wood rules the interior, and the many windows allow for natural lighting. Dine on the patio and watch the Mississippi flow by, or inside, where the feisty waitresses are at your beck and call. An entree like the French Quarter Fettuccine should not be given a miss, unless you opt for the Gorgonzola Tamales. Enjoy the funky paintings as you wait for your meal to arrive.
