Restaurant Review: Mansurs on the Boulevard
Restaurant Review: Mansurs on the Boulevard



People love brunch. It's like the last weekend hoo-rah before the workweek starts. On a recent Sunday, my companion and I set out to join the final celebration at Mansurs on the Boulevard.



Seated in a booth facing the dining room, we felt a little on display, as everyone entering passed our table. But the location did offer us a wide vista of the room and allowed us to appreciate the softly hued paint, bricked archways and wood-beamed ceilings. With walls accented by Louisiana art and the atmosphere punctuated by a pianist, the entire scene made for a serene dining experience.



We commenced our meal with the Shrimp Cocktail appetizer. A fixture on many menus of the past, I was thrilled to see it make an appearance here. Served chilled, five plump shrimp arrived in a dish that harkened of bygone restaurants that served Shrimp Cocktail with style. These shrimp were perfectly cooked, but the accompanying cocktail sauce needed spice. My companion was reminded of jarred chili sauce. Still, it was a very pleasant and light start to what is traditionally a rich meal. Click here to read the whole review.
