We ate upstairs in an old bedroom with one other couple and a family. Kinda weird. Too obviously an old bedroom. The servers had to go up and down very steep stairs to bring our food and to check on us to the point I didn't want to ask for refills. The food was a 3 out of 10 and I had heard it was supposed to be authentic. Maybe the cook cancelled like the musicians?

THE FOOD WAS REALLY DELICIOUS AND TRULY A "CAJUN EXPERIENCE". WE OVERHEARD ONE DINER UPON LEAVING SAY, "THIS IS THE BEST CAJUN FOOD I'VE EVER HAD OUTSIDE OF NEW ORLEANS"...HAVING NEVER BEEN IN NEW ORLEANS OURSELVES, THAT WAS A VERY HIGH INDICATOR OF HOW GOOD AND TRUE THE FOOD IS TO CAJUN CUISINE. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS THE $30 GROUPON WAS SUPPOSED TO COVER A $60 VALUE AND INSTEAD WAS USED AS A PRE-PAID DISCOUNT OF $30, PAYING THE FULL BALANCE OF THE MEAL WHEN WE DINED THERE. WE COULD SAY IT WAS AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE IF WE HAD ENJOYED THE MEAL AND THEN PAID THE DIFFERENCE OVER $60. STILL, THAT DID NOT DETRACT TOTALLY FROM THE FACT THAT THE CAJUN EXPERIENCE DOES DELIVER A CAJUN EXPERIENCE AND FOR MANY, THAT IS WORTH SOMETHING.

I am from southern Louisiana. I generally avoid places outside of that area that claim to be Cajun because usually it's just stuff cooked with lots of pepper. But this is the real deal. Also please note for those who say it's not New Orleans cooking, it's NOT, but that's because New Orleans cooking is unique to the rest of the cooking in the southern part of the state.

From Our Editors

In 2009, Southern Louisiana native Melissa Crosswhite decided to show the nation's capital what Cajun cuisine is really about. With eight generations of family recipes in her hand, she set up shop in a historical 18th-century home. Soon enough, the mouthwatering aromas of her spicy étouffée, jambalaya, and gumbo filled the house and out onto the street, where it started drawing crowds from Maryland, Washington DC, and West Virginia. Today, diners enjoy meals prepared from those same trusted family recipes, including blackened chicken, alligator, and fried oyster po' boys. All sandwiches are made with New Orleans' famous Leidenheimer bread, spicy chipotle sauce, and the laments of a poor, poor boy. Guests enjoy their meals on a quaint patio or amid the historic home's Mardi Gras masks, crimson walls, and vintage touches. Chef Crosswhite's dessert skills can put a sweet cap on any creole feast with pecan pie and authentic Café Du Monde beignets.
