As if to prove an old dog can indeed learn new tricks, after 28 years Zydeco decided to finally add dinner service instead of just lunch. Downtown workers and residents have long been making pilgrimages to this casual diner setting for warm bowls of étouffée and gumbo, as well as platters of fried seafood. Now, night-time diners can also partake in the deliciousness of fried shrimp and catfish. Adorned in an abundance of antiques and restaurant relics, Zydeco is something of a mini-museum that's also a feast for the eyes.
