Bonnie Jeans Soul Food Cafe..Off Euclid and 54th

Bonnie Jeans Soul Food Cafe..Off Euclid and 54th

Ever in need of some good old fashion Southern style food, then Bonnie Jean’s Soul Cafe is the place for you.  Our supper club tried it out this Saturday and it was good.  Service was a little slow and the food takes time to fry, but worth the wait for the fried chicken.  One person tried the fried pork chops and felt that they were a little dry.  Chicken however was really good.  Moist on inside with nice crisy breading on the outside.  No reservations are taken and they close at 7pm so get down there around 5 and it is perfect!  Our group has almost been together for a year and it has been fun trying out new places.  Ususally I am the queen of pictures for dessrts but this time we didn’t have any at the restaurant.  Instead we headed back to Rob and Dawn’s and had s’mores by the firepit!  Loving those but forgot the pictures!  Dark chocolate with the toasted marshmellow, crunchy graham crackers and it just adds up to YUMMY!!!  Watch for the next month’s entry and see where our group ventures to next!  BTW, congrats to Curtis and Jacqueline–baby on the way!!!!

Supper Club

First supper club
Fun times at the Barrel Room

I am looking forward to our supper club on Saturday.  We have been doing this for 2 months with some friends and are truly enjoying it.  Each month, someone picks a restaurant to try.  No chains, entrees about $15-22. Whoever picks makes the reservations.  We keep it to 2nd or 3rd Saturday of the month for easy planning for everyone.  First month was a the Barrel Room in RB.  Great food and wine and lots of fun!  Last month was Andres Restaurant down on Morena.  Awesome food.  Great Cuban flavors, loved the mixture of spices and the fried plantains were wonderful.  This month we are going to Bud’s Louisiana Cafe.  A place close to my heart since I still call Louisiana home.  Looking forward to shrimp or crawfish…Gumbo will be a must.  Look for my posting on it!

Here is the 2nd month place

Let the drinks get us started!
