LOCATION WE VISITED
217 South Elm St, Greensboro, NC 27401
Some good ole Creole food in the heart of Greensboro, North Carolina… my how things have changed in this charming city. First off let me say the name Blue Denim had me curious from the start — Is this a restaurant, bar or jean shop? As I approached from the street, I noticed the sidewalk signage and decided to peak through the glass. As my eyes perused the space, I notice a hipster in denim serving tables ding! That’s when I decided to check out the menu and knew I was in for a treat. The staff was pleasant, explained my choices of white wines to accommodate my meal and recommended a Riesling – which I don’t typically drink… but as always, I’m feeling adventurous. Let’s just say I had more than one glass (it was a dry, not sweet). I made my way through a few of the items on the food menu and gave high marks for each dish. This low-key spot definitely hit the mark on many of the Creole dishes that you find in New Orleans country.
Oh, one other thing…. I ordered a Sazerac (New Orleans classic) that was delivered to my table on a beautifully polished antique silver tray. It’s that level of detail that enhances the overall dining experience!
