- This gumbo kind of sneaks up on you; the first taste is salty, but then the piquancy builds and provides the sharp edges around the wonder flavours of chicken, sausage, spices. – Curmudgeon-About-Town
- The food is VERY flavorful and does not dissapoint! The wait staff was outstanding and hospitable. – alamoliving, TripAdvisor
Mike's in the Village
Hailed by the San Antonio Current as being “far too good to remain a local secret” thanks to a menu featuring “some of the best New Orleans food this side of the French Quarter,” Mike's in the Village delights palates with the culinary traditions of Louisiana. New Orleans native Chef Michael Romano painstakingly transformed the space—a one-time bowling alley—into “an attractive, low-key restaurant” whose charm is bolstered by “tasteful decor [that] includes regional paintings by Buzz Heye”, an “inviting bar,” and a “welcoming patio” that doubles as a no-fly zone for sun-obscuring clouds. Within the restaurant’s bustling kitchen, Chef Michael and his team can be found deploying traditional recipes to forge zing-infused dishes such as crawfish étouffée and chicken and sausage gumbo.
