At Polk and Green, there's a place called Rex Cafe (pictured above) that we just adore! It used to be called Casablanca, but it's been called the Rex Cafe for about 12 years now. They have awesome Bloody Mary's, four different types of Eggs Benedict, and a wide array of great specials that change periodically. Executive Chef John Pauley creates fun dishes that are always fresh, contemporary and loaded with interesting flavors. The selections are categorized from heavier entrees, al the way to lighter, fresher things. They also have smaller plates, like a beet carpaccio and an Asian-inspired tuna tartare, and really unusual stuff like a catfish corndog and a Southern-fried poussin with waffles. They have a great outdoor area where you can dine outside when the weather permits. Rex Cafe is a prefect place to enjoy good food, relax and people watch.
