Enjoy Family Recipes
Restaurant owners Greg and Theresa Shea hail from New Orleans, so they didn’t have to look far to get the recipes for this restaurant. They hand-selected some of their favorite authentic New Orleans family recipes. With each one, they start with the roux. They note that’s the foundation of Cajun cooking. It thickens and seasons the dishes, making them delicious.
The chefs make the food in stages to ensure that diners can taste all the complex flavors. Instead of being extremely spicy, everything is extremely flavorful.
So Much Good Food
Everything is good on this menu, so what should you get?
Let’s start with the fried catfish. It has just enough spice to make it flavorful, and it just might be the best fried catfish you’ve ever eaten. It turns out that catfish with a New Orleans twist is just better.
Oh, and how about that red beans and rice? This is true red beans and rice, not that stuff that you make at home. You haven’t had this dish until you’ve eaten it with all the Cajun spices and flavors.
Then there’s the Bayou Sampler. How can you pass up crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and boudin boulettes? Of course, you’ll also get your French bread to soak up all that sauce.
