Café 37 Review
This small, unassuming spot is tucked away behind 37th Street @ Abercorn Antiques and Design store in the Thomas Square neighborhood. Although it's a bit outside the downtown Historic District, this little café is worth the trip, and for antiques shoppers it's a great place to grab lunch after checking out the wealth of antiques stores in the Victorian District (just south of the Historic District). Chef-owner Blake Elsinghorst is a Georgia boy who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and, fittingly, his lunch menu runs the gamut from Southern contemporary (a pork sandwich with Gruyère cheese, champagne vinaigrette, and Dijon mustard on herbed sourdough) to French classics (crepes or escargot). Tip for the thrifty: small plates are served on Thursday evenings, so you can sample all the flavors at a lower price point. The artwork in the café is an oversized takeoff on Southern country landscapes and lends the place a fun and funky vibe.
