Fellini's New Orleans

Located just steps from City Park on Carrolton is Fellini's Cafe. Billed as offering Mediterranean inspired dishes, the place is usually pretty full at lunch time. I went there to eat with four other people and I've never been around wait staff better able to avoid eye contact than the group working on Friday. It took them more than 10 minutes to get an emptied tabled cleaned and wiped down so we could sit in a place that was only 2/3 full.

Once that little incident was behind us the afternoon improved. My Bloody Mary was small but potent and the plate of hummus was generous enough for all five of us to enjoy. I had the portabella mushroom sandwich on foccacia and was a little disappointed by the small slices of mushroom. The feta cheese and sun dried tomato mayo quite overpowered the tiny amount of mushroom. The fries were great though--plank style with Cajun seasoning. I also tried the crab and corn soup and it was richly flavored with large pieces of crab. The woman who got the roasted eggplant sandwich said it was delicious.

All in all, it certainly wasn't a terrible meal so much as a bit disappointing for the price. I will probably return when it warms up to sit outside and watch the streetcars go by but I won't necessarily go back for the food.

  1. I think that when weighing the merits of hangover cures, one must also consider pleasure. A "medicine," which tastes awful is less likely to be taken. My vote goes to the Bloody Mary.
