Upscale Southern Cuisine

The other night a friend and I decided to go out to dinner. After playing a game of “I don’t care” and “What do you want to eat?” we finally decided to take a friend’s tip for this restaurant downtown and try it out. The place is called Alexandria’s (located at 2020 2nd Avenue) and it was pretty fantastic if I do say so myself. Growing up in the south, I am pretty much a snob of so-called “cajun” or “southern” cooking, but Alexadria’s didn’t let me down. The menu ranged from pan seared chicken (super) to gumbo (my friend enjoyed this a great deal with the large amount of seafood given to him) to jambalaya. The prices are in the $25 a plate range, but when you add the food to the incredible ambiance of the restaurant to the stellar service we received, you’ll find yourself wanting to venture into creole territory a little more often.

    If you want some good Cajun food. You have to try From the Bayou in Parkland. It’s great, and well worth the drive.
