Estelle's Revamps Lunch Menu

By Scott Kearnan
October 15, 2013

Already plotting your lunch break? Estelle's, the South End's peppy little purveyor of Southern cuisine, has revamped its lunch menu (served 11:30 AM-5 PM), and the results sound spicy and superb. The focal point: a slew of new po' boys that cut the autumn chill with a little heat. (Color us unsurprised, since chef Eric Gburski hails from the home of "Hell Night," East Coast Grill.) There's the Cajun grilled chicken with a zingy rémoulade, Cajun meatloaf patties with a spicy Coca-Cola glaze, and the "Dr. Pepper” Scotch bonnet sausage served with hot sauce and sautéed peppers and onions. You'll want to brace yourself for that last one; Scotch bonnet has a heat rating of 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville units, compared to, say, 2,500 to 8,000 for a jalapeño. If you're a sensitive stomach with a post-lunch conference call, you may want to put antacid on the agenda (857-250-2999).
