The menu here offers two sides: Cajun and Not So Cajun, with daily specials spanning the gray area. Even before ordering, you'll swoon over the sweet, moist muffins---it’s a challenge not to finish them before the actual meal arrives. The staff is ready to explain bayou life to you, but if your mind-set remains truly, stubbornly Middle American, marinated-then-fried chicken wings are a tasty compromise. For those who want to savor the romance of N'awlins country, pay attention to anything blackened, caramelized, or stuffed. For example, the eggplant with shrimp buttercream sauce or the chicken Tchopitoulas Street, a boneless chicken rolled with Tasso ham and mushrooms and covered with béarnaise sauce. They are both standouts, showing off the restaurant's propensity for distinctive layers of flavors. Consider forgoing bites, though, because desserts are required eating. Bananas foster, bread pudding, and the pecan pie with an underbelly of sweet potato can't miss. Also consider Chef Steve's key lime pie—it's absurdly tart and smooth and will knock out any Yankee loyalty you might have.
