La Villa Créole
La Villa Créole Review
This restaurant's Martinican owner, Guy Bruere-Dawson, has been singing and strumming the guitar since the 1980s—in five languages, everything from François Cabrel to Elton John, some Italian and Creole ballads, even original ditties. Other singers perform, too, on Friday and Saturday nights, when there might also be a limbo show, a Brazilian group, Caribbean musicians, and perhaps an art expo. To see the show, you must order dinner; grilled lobster from the tank is often the best option. That said, the present chef has a fine repertoire of contempory French-creole cuisine. There's also a small dance floor, and a few tables are outside the open-air restaurant. If patrons aren't using them for dinner, you can just drink and more or less hear the music. The crowd tends to be mature.
