Donell Jones is indeed back, celebrating a new album release and performing in concert tonight at The Shark Bar & Grille, a swanky/sexy ("swexy"?) new lounge renovated from the shell of what used to be The Pearl Bistro & Bar. Instead of the warmer, rustic-earth orange/gold/cream interior color scheme, there are now lush nighttime hues of deep blue, purple, and glossy black.
The spot stays open until 3am on Fridays, Saturdays, and because why not, Tuesdays. Featured on the menu are pastas like Chicken and Sausage, a gargantuan $18 serving of Louisiana Gumbo with shrimp, crawfish, chicken and other gumboey things, and what they swear you'll say are the best catfish fingers in town, unless of course you've ever shaken Manti Teo's hand.
Again, Donell Jones performs tonight -- I know, that's like three or four times now -- and I'd guess he's hitting the stage around 11pm or later.
