At Belle Isle Bayou—named after one of the five islands off the coast of Louisiana—executive chef Byron Boquet crafts a menu of fragrant and tasty Cajun and Creole dishes. Red beans and rice are slow-cooked, allowing flavors to become complex, while the etouffee features morsels of crawfish, shrimp, or blackened fish in a spicy roux. Those longing for a sultry, humid evening on the bayou can turn off the hot water and exit the shower, heading instead to the Louisiana-inspired eatery to enjoy traditional gumbo or jambalaya accompanied by a selection of lagniappes such as dirty rice and greens.
At Amigos Original Tex-Mex, chefs fuse south-of-the-border cuisine with Texas ingredients, spices, and sauces. With festive music playing, staffers bustle plates of Lone Star chimichangas, Texas chicken flautas, and bistec tacos from kitchen to table. The sizzle and crackle of a steak-and-chicken fajita adds its own soundtrack to the dining room, and flavorful margaritas can cause diners to burst into song. When it’s warm out, guests are seated on the patio to enjoy dining under the glow of one or many stars depending on the time of day.
Aiming to emulate the tucked-away wine bars and cafes of Europe, Le Rouge Wine Bar and Tapas accommodates its guests in the low-lit, loungey atmosphere with chic, comfortable chairs and warm tones. Of course, there's wine. Along one wall, rows of wine bottles are displayed adjacent to a line of intimate tables where couples share small plates, or wait for the next course in a tasting menu coupled with wine pairings.
Like the neon sign that hangs from a traditional Japanese gate outside, the cuisine at Fusian Express fuses old and new. Creative flamed rolls incorporate ingredients such as sweet potatoes and cream cheese, and more traditional sushi fills boats and bento boxes. Chefs also stir-fry rice and noodle dishes from a variety of Asian cuisines, including Chinese lo mein, Thai pad thai, and Korean bulgogi, served alongside cold sake and beers.
Cooks at Tacos El Rancho harness fresh ingredients and authentic recipes to populate a no-frills menu with classic Mexican cuisine. Their collection of tacos, enchiladas, and burritos highlights house sauces and authentic meats such as carnitas, shredded chicken, grilled pork, beef tongue, and shrimp. Live mariachi bands add to the already festive atmosphere, as do frosty margaritas and a choir of self-blowing noisemakers.:m]]
