Shula's Grill 347. Thursday Night Jazz.

Guest Post by Rebecca

Tomorrow night launches the first "Thursday Night Live Jazz" at Shula's 347 Grill. Shula's Grill is in the newly renovated Sheraton just north of I30 downtown (formerly, the Ramada). "Newly renovated" understates the actual cost of renovation which was $50 million. It is now a very attractive hotel and restaurant.

I had lunch yesterday at Shula's 347 and walked through the hotel as well. As a restaurant, I would put Shula's in the Charleston's category. Casual atmosphere, quality food. Steaks, seafood, salads, sandwiches. We had the grilled shrimp as an appetizer and it was delicious -- and the shrimp were jumbo as advertised. It is reasonably priced for the "casual dining" category. I liked it a lot.

The Thursday Night Jazz is a new event for the restaurant and something they seemed very excited about. The Freddie Jones Jazz Band will perform for the first three weeks. Food and drink specials will be offered and there is no cover charge.

One final Suggestion. If you arrive before 6:30 take a walk through the renovated Water Gardens. It is worth a visit.

But definitely consider the Jazz night at Shula's.

Other musical groups in the initial line up alternating with Freddie Jones include:
  • Adonis Rose Quintet
  • Texas Gypsies
  • Breggett Rideau
  • Rachella Parks.

(They tell me there is Trolley service from Downtown South to Sundance Square. If you have used it, please let me know how it is.)
