Appetizer: A true New Orleans tradition, created right in the city back in the early 1900’s. We make ours with Leidenheimer’s French Bread straight from New Orleans. The original coined and most popular is a Roast Beef and Gravy PoBoy. We will do a mini app size that will come “Dressed” with our homemade mayo, lettuce, tomato, provolone & a pickle spear.

 

Entree: Gumbo with chicken and sausage a Louisiana official and traditional dish.

When the weather gets colder it is time for Gumbo which is a labor of love but so worth the wait in time to enjoy this Creole creation.

 

Dessert: King Cake, Pecan Praline flavor will make you yell “Hey Mista, throw me sumthing”! Watch out for the baby hiding inside one of the slices. If you get the baby, you are the Queen or King for the day and will receive your own King Cake to take home.  This sweet brioche cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and pecan praline cake is great anytime of day and is sure to sweeten you up!
