Jaques-Imos website?

I just tried to pull up their website and it worked (but had to press down the Control key on my computer while connecting - don't know if that is my problem or theirs, but it did pull up). The site is www.jacquesimoscafe.com - you can see the menu, map, etc. Hope this helps.

Jaques-Imos website?

Don't know if you have already left for your trip, but we were in New Orleans two weeks ago and ate at Jacques-Imo's on October 19th and LOVED it! We were with friends and ordered appetizers and shared them. Try the alligator sausage cheesecake, the eggplant, the fried green tomatoes with shrimp, the fried grits, and the shrimp. Every entree from carpetbagger steak to jambalaya to catfish with crabmeat dressing - Every one was really tasty. Then they brought out a platter of desserts since we had mentioned that it was one of our friends birthdays. We were very impressed with the total package - the food, the total craziness of the place, the energy and fun atmosphere, the great waitresses - a very good celebration place.

Cancun Foods

There is a small Italian restaurant "Ristorante Italiano Dolce...mente Pompei" located along the Kulkulcan Km. 5.5 (between the Casa Maya and Riu Caribe hotels). It is right on the beach, very simple, run by real Italians, and good food. You can't see it from the street too well - it is located on a small circle drive off the main street. Worth a visit - not terribly touristy. They dress is Roman garb and on weekend nights have some musical entertainment (at least they did in April 2007).

Re: Central Grocery

Under "Weekend restaurant report" on this board, they said they had gotten muffs somewhere else since Central Grocery was closed - maybe they just meant "closed for the day" ??

Re: Central Grocery

Is Central Grocery really closed!!??!! I hadn't read that before. We are coming down in three weeks and it was on our list to grab some muffelatas. We have been planning our eating destinations day by day and are really loving this website - makes my mouth water just to anticipate all the good food we will be enjoying.
