Le Fleur De Lis
Featured on 190 North and ChicagosBestTV.com, Le Fleur de Lis's chef Allen J. Rochelle Jr. crafts a menu of creole classics from his hometown in southwest Louisiana. According to reporter Brittney Payton of ChicagosBestTV.com, "Every single bite has a kick, a punch, a smack" of heat—including oysters, catfish, and shrimp deep-fried in a spice-infused buttermilk batter. Cajun seasonings also light a fire under classics such as crayfish étoufée and meat-packed jambalaya. Outside, crimson-coated brick walls depict a jazz band belting tunes, while inside, figures in neighborhood scenes try to convince diners to share their meals.
