FIrst Impressions: Veranda on Highland

New executive chef Thomas Robey, formerly sous chef at Commander's Palace in New Orleans, has brought new life to the menu at Veranda on Highland, which previously was a re-run of the now-closed Bombay Cafe. We tried it last night, and there's a lot of potential here, but it was still a little rough around the edges. The atmosphere is delightful, the old house perfect for a New Orleans-inspired menu. An appetizer of jumbo lump crabmeat with watermelon, cucumber and tomato was summer on a plate. The lamb and shrimp and grits entrees were delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. There were a few missteps and disappointments, though. We'll tell you more in a full-fledged review to come.
