Po’ Boy @ Darrow’s New Orleans Grill

Trying a New Orleans restaurant.


Secret menu is no longer secret…


Happy Hour 4-7pm


Around 6pm, there were only 3-4 groups, but it was almost full when we left around 7pm.


Menu


They offer samples for first timers. From left, gumbo, red beans & rice, jambalaya. All good 🙂


New Orleans Theme Wall


Happy Hour Stella ($4) and Chardonnay ($4)

Glass was very dirty and I asked to change. The bartender washed it right in front of us and served wine in the wet glass. Not impressive at all, but it would be acceptable at this price. Also, this wine tastes very light and sweet, which I am not fan. Beer would be a safe choice.


His: Catfish Po’ Boy $8.99, Mine: Bayou Classic Po’ Boy (Shrimp & Oyster) $10.99

It was pretty good but difficult to eat without spilling. I will try either catfish po’ boy or gumbo.

Steak & Italian Red Blend


Dinner: Tender Green’s Steak with Kale & Quinoa


Wine Insiders #2: Cantus Rosso ★★★


Tasting Note – Open this non-vintage Italian Red from Cantus early, giving it time to breathe before drinking. When you taste the flavors of raspberry and strawberry, you’ll know it was worth the wait. This smooth, central Italian red follows the up-front fruit with hints of roasted peppers and fresh herbs.

Overall impression to Wine Insiders wines is ok. I like Firstleaf wines best among other wine club such as Vinesse or Winc.
