I received a "Grand Opening" email from Amanda Cravens at Buggs Temple over the weekend with the current/October menus for The Grille at Buggs Temple and Tavern at the Temple. They don't appear to be publicly available yet, but the email mentioned that a new Buggs Temple webpage will be going up soon and they'd be crazy not have menus up there.

The Grille at Buggs Temple
The Tavern at the Temple menu is a bit rich for me, but I guess it's fine for what they're trying to do there. However, I think the price point for The Grille is too high. An average price per entre around $9 is a bit expensive to entice people to just pop in for a bite while they're out on the canal. "$11 for a hamburger? Y'all must be crazy!" Harry and Izzy's doesn't even charge that much for their delicious steakburger. Feels like they're trying to capitalize on their near-monopoly on Canal food and I don't like that. Still, I'll give 'em a shot, but they better be putting out an amazing product at these prices.
