Salad: Shrimp Remoulade Vieux Carré

A delicate bed of butter lettuce, layered with flavorful poached shrimp in a spicy remoulade styled dressing and topped with shredded red cabbage, green onions, yellow bell pepper and grape tomatoes (all the colors of Mardi Gras).

Soup: Mardi Gras Gumbo Ya-Ya

A dark and deeply flavored gumbo featuring chicken, Tasso ham and andouille sausage cooked long and slow in the Cajun tradition with onions, peppers, celery and more than a few secret ingredients. Garnished with white rice and served with Creole hush puppies.

Sandwich: Bourbon Street Muffuletta

Our take on the classic sandwich which originated in the famed Central Grocery in New Orleans. We start with a special muffuletta roll (actually baked in New Orleans) and layer it high with deli ham, Genoa salami, capicola and provolone cheese then we smother it with a zesty olive salad, made in house for this awesome sandwich. Served with your choice of chips.

Pasta: Blackened Chicken Jambalaya Pasta

Zesty blackened chicken is quickly sautéed with andouille sausage, garlic, onions and red and green bell peppers. This mixture is finished with a touch of cream and tossed with penne pasta... Garnished with green onions and Parmesan cheese.

Entrée: Shrimp and Crawfish Etouffée

Shrimp and crawfish tails are smothered in a rich sauce of onions, celery, garlic, tomato, bell pepper and Cajun spices with a splash of cream. Served with Stompin’Cheese Grits. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

Combo: Soup, Salad or Sandwich Combo

Can't decide between a soup, salad or sandwich? Let us help with our combo meal! Choose two half items instead. You have a choice of a half sandwich, half salad or half soup.
