Re: Roux on Canton. Having grown up in the Irish Channel of New Orleans during the 40's and atteneded high school there in the 50's, a review like this would have been the norm. Dat means dey serve good food!! If you went into a N.O.La. restaurant and found handrails on the walls, it did not mean they were ahead of the times in regards to being handicapped equpped, but to keep one from slipping from the grease on the floor. Having read this to my wife she said that things have not changed much in all those years and would be the same for many restuarants in the center of older cities.

Good news - Roux reports that they earned an A (97) on their second inspection today.

Dat's why we second line down there, cause we always get it right the second time around. Congrats to all who made it happen! Now not only do they have good food but they have moved up in the class with a 97.

The Roswell Tea House is reporting that they received a 100 on their follow-up.
