We've probably been unique among restaurants during the nearly two year-long pandemic in that we've stayed pretty optimistic about the future even while the industry as a whole is panicking, and we've navigated it pretty well! Our most important mission is to be here for our employees, our community, and provide you with a respite from the day to day. During this pandemic, we've found renewed purpose in being here to provide everyone an escape whenever one was needed, even if was just to step out of the house to pick up some favorite dishes. Now, with vaccines and boosters available, we're here to show you a good time in person whenever you want to get away from it all!

Mardi Gras is late this year, on Tuesday, March 1. The good news is this means we'll have cracker jack Louisiana cooking for an extra long time this year for extra enjoyment, and we'll get a chance to experiment with more specials and a bigger music playlist.

Our Mardi Gras Menus launch this Friday, January 28. We're doubling down on the good vibes this year and going to town with the decorations, there will be free-flowing drink specials, and all of the best Louisiana cooking we can drum up. Cocktails will include our classic sazerac, plus champagne cocktails, daiquiris, and hurricanes as only we can make them.

You'll be delighted to hear about the return of such favorites as barbecued shrimp, peacemaker and hot sausage poor boys, alligator & andouille sauce piquant, seafood okra gumbo, and that beguiling gumbo z'herbes and crawfish etouffee, plus many others and some specials that will pop up here and there. Keep an eye out on our Instagram feed for the occasional muffaletta popup!

Whole king cakes are on offer again his year! they are medium-sized rings of laminated brioche pastry, designed to serve a small party of 6-8. They will be available for online ordering from our web site, and of course you can order a slice when you dine in. They'll appear on our online ordering page this Friday.
