It's been yeeeears since I last went to Mahony's. So many years that everything is completely different now. I remember a small dining room that was very much like sitting in someone's front parlor. It is now opened up and light, airy, still cozy but with far more space. An extensive po-boy menu graces the front wall.
I went with a friend and we split the Fried Green Tomato and Grilled Shrimp 12 inch po-boy. While the remoulade was a little too Creole-mustardy for me, she pronounced it the "best po-poy I have ever eaten." High praise, indeed.
The tomatoes were freshly fried in a crisp cornmeal batter. Shrimp were perfectly grilled. The sauce was heavily flavored with green onion, Creole mustard and more (too much flavor for me actually but my lunch companion was fine with it). All in all, a very nice po-boy.
