A Yocona Kind of Sunday

17 Jan

Sundays are always my favorite day to go to Yocona because you can bring your own bottle of wine, it’s a nice short drive outside of town and, let’s face it, there’s not a whole lot going on in Oxford on a Sunday.

If you haven’t been to Abbeville to check out the opening of Yocona in Exile yet, you’ll arrive to find the former Yocona’s familiar bread and butter is waiting for you alongside oven-fried catfish and thick-cut filets with Yocona sauce.

Some of the highlights from this week’s menu include:

  • Catfish Creole – Mississippi farm-raised catfish, oven-fried in seasoned cornmeal, served with crawfish etouffee and wild rice.
  • Duck & Sausage Gumbo – A rich okra gumbo with roasted duck and Andouille sausage, served with wild rice.
  • Blue Cheese Strip – A 16 oz. Certified Hereford NY Strip, grilled to order and topped with blue cheese compound butter.
  • Sour Cream Cheesecake with Dark Chocolate Sauce

See this week’s full menu here.

Welcome Back Yocona!

28 Oct

Exciting news for everyone who has anxiously been awaiting the rebuild of Yocona River Inn!

Yocona will be opening a location in Abbeville that will serve as a temporary outpost to the original location while the other is being rebuilt. Currently being called Yocona in Exile, owner Paige Osborn says that the plan is to “hopefully” have the grand reopening on Thanksgiving and stay open Thursday through Sunday. Once the original location is finished, they may even keep the Abbeville locale as a second option for Yocona lovers.

While the Abbeville location will be a scaled back version of the original location, there will still be salads, filets, fish and poultry on the menu.
