"To Grandfather's House We Go"
from Westword, June 26, 1996

Good homestyle cooking. Friendly atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Sounds like an advertisement for one of those chain restaurants that bills itself as your neighborhood eatery, doesn't it? Yeah, your neighborhood and the neighborhoods of three dozen other cities across the country. But what if those words accurately describe a real neighborhood joint, one that cuts across all trends, a true mom-and-pop place?

We need more restaurants like NoNo's. And we'd have them, too, if diners would stop frequenting those cookie-cutter chain eateries, whose prices might be comparable to or even lower than NoNo's but whose straight-from-a-can quality leaves something to be desired--like flavor. And we'd have more of them still if independent restauranteurs would stop trying so hard to wow us with their brilliant concepts and overblown food and instead just cook and serve decent, honest meals in family-style settings.
NoNo's dining room feels like it belongs in a house. Tidy and slightly countrified, it's been carefully decorated with bric-a-brac from the Brewster's past: a black metal manual typewriter, a slew of farm tools, some photos and memorabilia from Brian's days as a New Orleans Saints cheerleader.

 

Spicy brown gravy cloaked egg noodles and serveral pieces of flank steak that were so tender they fell apart before our fork even touched them; this delicious pile came with fresh string beans, barely sauté and slick with butter. That side was so good we decided to make an entire meal out of what other restaurants consider afterthoughts.

 

The corn maque choux, for example, proved itself deserving of top billing. Also wonderful was the side of creamed potatoes...We also tried Mayme's macaroni and cheese from the four-item children's menu and fought like kids over the big mound of ziti absolutely smothered with melted, oil-oozing cheddar cheese.

 

And our desserts had us bouncing around like six-year olds badly in need of our next dose of Ritalin. Although the sweet potato crunch is also available as a side dish, its unbelievable sugary sweetness--compounded by the natural sweetness of cooked-to-pudding-consistency sweet portatoes and the crumbly, buttery topping--might make it impossible to continue with the rest of a meal. But as a dessert it was so good that we found it difficult to focus on the chocolate fudge cake--which Brian proudly told us was a blue-ribbon winner in a contest back home--and the chocolate eclair, which Sonda makes entirely from scratch.Both were deserving of our attention, the sort of confections that had us groaning with ecstacy and longing for more.
