When owner Johnny Carrabba set out on his next restaurant venture, he knew his vision would include the fond memories he had of his dear grandmother Grace Mandola. Grace, also known to the family as Mama, was a Sicilian woman born to immigrant parents in Louisiana. She had a flair for cooking, hospitality, and deep faith.

She was known to make bread from scratch every Saturday for her legendary three-hour Sicilian Sunday lunches; and, her newly established family roots in Louisiana added interesting flavors to her home cooked meals. The entire Mandola family, including her five children and fourteen grandchildren, was regularly greeted in her home with smells of warm bread, well brewed sauces and homemade soups. It was around her table that her family learned the true meaning and value of relationships, friendships and good food. These memories are realized when one walks into Johnny Carrabba’s new restaurant, Grace's.

I think $11 is a bit pricey for a mimosa. A $7 price points makes more sense. An offering of a carafe that provides 4 servings for $28 is a viable option. Mimosas should not be the price of a cocktail the supplies are inexpensive and cost mere seconds to make no mixology skills needed.

Had entree from the restaurant month so maybe I should have ordered from the regular menu. Tried the ribeye with mashed potatoes. Ribeye was just okay, a little tough and the potatoes were instant, it seemed. The drinks, appetizers and salad with blue vinaigrette dressing were on point!!! Sat outside, noisy table next to us, but not too bad. I'll go back and try something from the regular menu to get a better feel for how good the food may be. All in all, an okay experience.

The food and our server were excellent. Given the current COVID issues, I was a little surprised and somewhat taken aback by what appeared to be a lack of social distancing. It was crowded and there were people all over the place.

I came there about once a month to get the pork chop and eggs for brunch. On this occasion my pork chop was overcooked. Pointed it out to waiter and asked him if he thought it was overcooked. He asked me to cut it and see, which I couldn’t do because it over cooked. Figured he would replace it and bring me a different pork chop that wasn’t over cooked. Instead he left me with the over cooked pork chop and brought a 1/4 of pork chop (I guess he assumed that’s what park of my pork chop was over cooked). I looked at him shook my head and finished my brunch. Doubt I’ll be back to one of my fav restaurants after that.

It was our first time to visit and it was fantastic. The staff was happy to see you and they all told you so. The menus is extensive from a home cooked meal perspective and everything was tasty. Now this isn't a cheap blue plate special place so you will spend some cash but the portions are extremely generous so you get your money's worth. You might want to split one. We are already planning a return visit and a note to all ...make a reservation, it was full.

My server, Todd, was amazing. The temperature in the restaurant is always cold so make sure to take a wrap or coat with you. It is so cold it is a bit uncomfortable unless you know to dress appropriately.
