This new Galveston restaurant/bar serves up authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine by Louisiana-native chefs. Several worked at New Orleans' legendary Parasol's Bar and Restaurant, and adding to the staff's pedigree, a manager told us that one of the chefs' great-grandfather was the fifth Mayor of New Orleans.
Authentic po-boy sandwiches, boudin balls, wild game gumbo (sometimes with alligator, sometimes with wild boar) and fresh seafood purchased a couple of blocks away are just some of the homemade fare served here, and don't forget to check out the dessert menu. Wash your food down with your choice of domestic beers, red or white wine, or a variety of bottled Abita craft beers.
Zydeco music and a busy dining room greeted us on a recent afternoon, and after the success of a recent concert out in the parking lot featuring Come See My Dead Person and the Invincible Czars, plans are now underway to build a beer garden and permanent stage out back for more live shows in the future.
