J. Wilson’s Best (New)Restaurant, Best Bar, Best Brunch….was this really the best restaurant in Beaumont? If so, I was going there for lunch. I arrived on the early side and got comfortable. I ordered a lazy tamales, essentially a deconstructed tamale topped with gulf shrimp, lump crab, avocado and a fried egg. Then it was time to check email and do a little prep for my meeting prior to my meal. The food? It was very enjoyable, served in a cast iron skillet and took no time at all. Plus the atmosphere was very laid back and I had excellent service. If only I was there at night, I would have had a drink at the bar!
Floyd’s Cajun Seafood Company I visited Floyd’s years ago during my first trip to Beaumont. I was there with a colleague and he ordered gumbo and I ordered bisque. We both thought it was pretty good. My second time to Beaumont also included a stop to Floyd’s for a quick cup of bisque and this trip, my third, was no different. I made a quick stop on my way to the airport to grab a bowl of crab bisque. I sat at the bar, checked email and enjoyed my garlic bread, rice and bisque. I left for the airport with plenty of time to spare and a full belly!
