A daytime snapshot of Marsha Brown Restaurant in New Hope

Why did we come here? There are many photo depictions of Marsha Brown by night, but fewer by day when the light takes on a diffused quality, and meal prices become quite reasonable.

Choices on the Creole-themed menu include a bevy of burgers, like the aptly-named Church Burger featuring caramelized Bleu cheese, roasted garlic and bacon bits, and a Chilled Tuna Tartar Burger. The Po’ Boys were fun stuff in sandwiches featuring Crispy Catfish, Andaluz Shrimp, and Gulf Coast Oysters.

Soup and salad choices were modest but perfect for lunch, and entrees like the Jambalaya, Mamere’s Crab Cheesecake, and Crawfish Etouffee were attention grabbers. Best part: all of the above were $15 or less. Best, best part: Christmas decorations in afternoon light coming through stained glass.

And to all, a good lunch.
