    Specialty drinks, ask for the Taste of Louisiana and the Seafood Gumbo if you're a newcomer. :)

    Try the fried spinach! It's fried and so adds some grease to your diet, but it's tasty and the texture is one-of-a-kind!

    The Easy Everything Burger here was one of the best burgers I've ever had. No joke.

    First time they had the regular brunch menu. Not a bad spot if the wait at capital club 16 is too long for weekend brunch.

    The food here is superb and reasonably priced. At night it turns into a decent bar. If you want to order a drink be sure to stand at the ends of the bar and not the middle or prepare to wait.

    Had "a taste of Louisiana" Rice was mush, jambalaya tastes like it had been sitting all day, and the gumbo was soup. The best thing on the plate was the fried shrimp. Thumbs down, wannabe bayou.
