Today’s Swamplot sponsor is The Durham House.
The Durham House debuted in late October, in the same porch-y building 2 blocksÂ north of Washington Ave where 3 successive Louisiana-themed restaurants (Floyd’s Cajun Kitchen, the Mardi Gras Grill, and Woodrows Heights) previouslyÂ served. With an all-new menu from veteran chef Don Schoenberg — focusing on local and Cajun cuisine as well as fare from bordering regions and beyond — and a major makeover, it’s now something entirely new. The interior of the 1,600-sq.-ft. space at 1200 Durham, which the proprietors say dates from the turn of the 20thÂ Century, is lighter and brighter than before. Its whitewashed walls, corrugated tin accents, Edison bulbs over the bar, and white metal chairs all aimÂ for a Southern, beachy ambience meant to jibe with the new culinary direction.
You can find out more details about the Durham House, find a link to a reviewÂ or 2, and scan itsÂ food and drinkÂ menus on the restaurant’s website. And if you do get to enjoy a meal there, please let â€™em know you heard about the placeÂ on Swamplot.
