First Look at Second Line's Menu

Second Line, architectural details

Second Line, Kelly English's much-anticipated sister restaurant to Creole-swanky Restaurant Iris is set to open later this fall.

English named the restaurant after the famous "second line" parades in New Orleans, explaining, "Basically, what we have at Second Line is a more casual, rowdy parade that's following this more organized parade that we have [at Iris]."

Rowdy as in the andouille, crawfish, and pimento cheese fries, which appear on the "Eat These Things First" appetizer section of the menu. There, too, is a roasted beet and feta shwarma (!) and crabmeat and fresh corn hushpuppies.

Some of the names of the sandwiches in the "Poboys" section of the menu may ring a bell: We know already that Justin Fox Burks of the Chubby Vegetarian offered input for the Chubby Vegetarian Mushroom Debris, but what Chris Vernon did to inspire the Verno-braised Chicken Thighs & Swiss ... ????

In "Plates," there's Fried Gulf shrimp as well as Mississippi Catfish Sauce Piquant.

Finally there's the "Groceries" section, which features "Hot" Potato Salad, Fancy Ass Cole Slaw, stewed beet greens, and cheese grits.
