Bannos is no stranger to the Loop lunch crowd—he’s been feeding them for years at his Wabash location of Heaven on Seven. This outpost, which offers a pared-down menu of Southern foods, has none of the character of Heaven. But the jambalaya fares pretty well (nicely cooked shrimp; spicy bites of sausage), the collard greens have spunk, and the smothered lima beans make for a nice side. Still, we’d rather eat at Heaven on Seven, if only for the selection of hot sauces.
