Loulou Redux

Loulou has very quickly become one of our favorite restaurants, and is pretty much our go-to place when we have friends or family in town. I've written it up once before, but we stopped in the other night and I snapped some more pictures, so why not give it another post?

This time I went for the muscles with chardonnay, fresh garlic, and tomato sauce to start. It was great, and they give you a ton. The sauce is perfect for dunking bread in, something that, according to our waitress, makes for a restaurant-wide bread shortage whenever they have a special on the dish.

Mick went with the French onion soup, a staple for her.

Eschewing an entrée, we each went for a crepe for our main dish. I chose the Coquille st. Jacque à la Crème off the appetizer menu, a crepe filled with sea scallops and portobellas in a white wine shallot cream sauce. It's as good as it sounds.

Mickey opted for the Crêpe Au Brie, which, as you can probably guess, is a crepe filled with brie along with apples and toasted pecans.

One of my absolute favorite things Loulou makes is their Warm Chocolate Cake, but I was a little too stuffed at this point to have one. Next time.

I've walked by this place so many times and never tried it... but now I will give it a go. The terrible service at Chez Oscar always makes me give it a pass, so another french option is great.

Also, glad to see this blog has new life again! I was about to give up hope....

I heard somewhere that chocolate cake is a potent potable.
