Mansurs on the Boulevard

Cedar Roasted Redfish

We started with the charbroiled oysters and a wedge salad. The oysters were okay…a bit tiny, but what was there was full of flavorful. The wedge salad was made with a fresh and chilly lettuce and seeded tomatoes, drizzled with a perfectly mild blue cheese dressing. Wonderful. The Creole Chicken Piccata was cooked perfectly, topped with a well balanced lemon/butter/caper sauce and accompanied by the house risotto. A home run, though the risotto was a little overdone (gluey). The Redfish was flaky and delicious, but perhaps a bit over-salted…might be a Southern thing that this northern palate just hasn’t adjusted to yet. The capers were a nice touch, adding a very subtle tangy/sour/lemony flavor.

Overall, a good experience. We’ll definitely return.

Times Grill’s ‘Famous’ Burgers

Times Grill Hamburger

The sign outside says, “World Famous Burgers” and the place is located about 300 yards from my apartment, so I had to stop in and see for myself.

Well, I don’t know about World Famous (that’s a pretty tall order to fill) but it was a pretty darn good burger. The 1/2 pound burger was hand-formed and cooked to a perfect medium rare, just as I ordered. The service was top-notch and the beer was ice cold. The atmosphere inside is a bit uninspired and there’s nothing special I can write about there, but this post is really about a quick, tasty burger that can be had right down my own street and not about the ambiance of the place. I’ll be back.
