Paula and I had the pleasure of dining at Sal and Judy’s in Lacombe, LA, about halfway between Mandeville and Slidell on the Northshore. It’s been about 20 years since we last ate there.
Paula had the speckled trout almandine with what must have been half a pound of beautiful lump crab meat. I had veal cannelloni at our server’s suggestion.
They get every detail right, including the service.
They have expanded the dining room since we last ate there (it started as a repurposed filling station). Same Sinatra music, though.
Two memorable dishes from years past are still on the menu: the fried chicken was maybe the best I’ve ever had. And the spaghetti and oysters were remarkable — Even better left over!
