Few cities are as celebrated for their cuisine as New Orleans, a fact the chefs at Bourbon Street Fish relish in as they grill fillets of red snapper and fry up tender wings of chicken. Po'boys stuffed with spicy sausage, shrimp, and oysters call to mind the tapestry of cultures that influenced Louisiana, while multicolored beads and Mardi Gras finery evoke images of costumed krewes, blaring Dixieland jazz processions, and tourists pretending to know the words to "Iko, Iko". Catering packages bring feasts of fish, French bread, and gumbo to client's doorsteps, while events such as Steve Harvey's Hoodie Awards and New Orleans Saints viewing parties draw accolades from visiting foodies and crowds of homesick Louisianans.
Guided by his Cajun roots in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Chef Geyen warms spirits with Southern dishes including po'boys, jerk chicken, and jambalaya loaded with shrimp and chicken sausage. A twinkling backdrop of string lights sets the mood to enjoy fresh grilled catfish, shrimp, and hot or mild chicken links alongside homestyle sides of collard greens and Heart & Soul's signature sweet-potato fries. Guests can cool off with a homemade sweet tea, and question servers about their catered meals that serve up to 100 guests or one well-mannered giant.:
