Jacques-Imo's Cafe Review
Oak Street might look like any other sleepy urban thoroughfare by day, but once the sun sets the half-block stretch containing Jacques-Imo's Cafe feels like the center of the universe. Prepare for lengthy waits in the festive bar for a table in the boisterous, swamp-theme dining rooms (fortunately, the bartenders are fast). Although not everyone is a fan, most say the modest-looking but innovative food is worth it: deep-fried roast beef po' boys, alligator sausage cheesecake, Cajun bouillabaisse, and smothered rabbit over grits are among the only-at-Jacques-Imo's specialties. Entrées come with salad and corn muffins. Reservations are required for parties of five or more and not accepted for smaller groups.
