This Louisiana-style brasserie serves up classic southern fare in a historic former speakeasy dating back to the early 1920’s, and is rumoured to be haunted be a former owner. Known as ‘Helen’, the spirit haunting the place is not pleased with the changes occurring in her former establishment, and often makes this known. Pots and pans move around the kitchen of their own accord, and employees have often received curt taps on the shoulder from an invisible hand.
