Being that we all know by now that The New South Cafe has relocated to The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum I thought it would only be proper for me to review The “New” New South Pub – in their new location at The Mighty Eighth.
First let me start out by saying that personally I like this location much better. It has the feel of an old british pub with the dark wood furnishings and the classic music playing from back in the day of old swingtime and Frank Sanatra. The New South Pub has altered their menu to reflect the harsh times of this day and age of the sinking economy – what do I mean by this? Well, it seems that they are smartly adjusting their menu to lower the prices and make every dish afordable and yet still serve the delicious food we all know from them.
My lunch consisted of the Salmon BLT served on grilled pumpernickle with a dill mayo and crispy sweet candied bacon with a side of sweet potato fries. What a great sandwich – nice and light, tasty and extremely satisfying. My dining companion opted for the Classic Club served on Texas Toast with a cup of Sweet Potato Bisque soup. The Club came to our table looking so impressive I almost pulled up a chair for the sandwich itself!! The sandwich stood about 4 inches high thanks to the texas toast and was ever so tasty. The cup of Sweet Potato Bisque, which they make from scratch, had a smooth, creamy and delicate sweetness from the sweet potatoes – it was wonderful!
Our overall experience was very nice. The location is great and the service from Amy was excellent. While I was there we asked about the Crab Cake Sandwich, which was one of our favorites at The New South Cafe, and were told that it will be making its way back on the menu soon. They also informed us that The Crab Cake Burger will be in the June/July issue of The Food Network Magazine’s Burger Round-up issue – How cool is that!
I congratulate The New South Pub for making changes when necessary and never losing sight of what is important. I am glad to see them being sucessful and wish the best for them in the future. If you haven’t been to see them yet please do, you will not be sorry.
