Little Gem Saloon

I had visitors in town and we decided to have a meal and live music. The Little Gem Saloon has two shows a night at 5 and 8 during the week and pretty good food, too. It is right up Poydras from where the hotel for the Golden Crown Literary Society Annual Conference will be in July and this was a good time to show the organizers some of what the city has to offer.

I had the shrimp and grits. A large plate with a number of good size shrimp in a well seasoned sauce. The grits were a delicious way to tame the heat.

It went very well with my Old Cubano drink and the jazz guitarist was a nice accompanist to the meal.

Michelle had the pulled pork small plate and it was tender and juicy meatiness.

For dessert we split the pistachio cheesecake and the chocolate bread pudding. NIce sauce on the bread pudding and the cream was a lovely touch to the cheesecake which needed it.

It was a little hard to keep our waitresses attention but the portions are large and the prices are reasonable, especially with the live music. Kermit Ruffins plays here pretty regularly and so it is a nice club to see him and get a really good meal.
