Cajun catfish and a hundred beers in the South End

Located in an old video store and named for the once-popular nearby neighborhood hotspot, Estelle's is an 80-seat celebration of the South from chefs Brian Poe (Tip Tap, Rattlesnake) and Eric Gburski (East Coast Grill) that pours one more than 99 beers (not on the wall, but at the bar) alongside burly sustenance from the area that didn't vote for Lincoln in the 1800s. Curiously ponder how the No. 1 bus manages to always get backed up as you gaze out the front bay window or just settle in at this handsome 11-seat drinking platform.Get the table started with bacon hushpuppies dipped in orange-chili honey & parsley butter before attacking this tasty fried shrimp po' boy sided by a green tomato-corn chow chow.Feel like a rich boy washing down that po' boy with small or large portions of one of those hundred brews (30 draft, 70 bottles) including Mongo Porter, McChouffe Belgium Brown, and even Dixie Blackened Voodoo Lager.
