OK, I suppose. But to me, NOTOS is for an unabashed indulgence, not for a budget meal. I love their blackened catfish, jambalaya, shrimp etouffee or deb's shrimp. Their soups are a matter of personal taste (I can live without alligator stew) but most of them are glorious.
NOTOS food is moderately priced, not cheap, and much of their menu is a butter-drenched trip to the dark side. A serving of their delicious potato salad fills your weekly fat allowance. NOTOS should be pursued in the moment, when extremely extreme comfort food is a must - no waiting for Monday night to get a deal on beans & rice.
Sorry for losing my temper, I hope we can still be friends.
