Although Queen Zuri New Orleans Delicacies stands more than 1,000 miles from the Big Easy, the shop manages to capture the sweetness of New Orleans life with an assortment of southern-inspired desserts. Red velvet cake, banana pudding, and pralines are a few specialties, along with exquisite wedding cakes tailored to individual tastes. There's a savory side to the shop, too: customers can slurp New Orleans–style gumbo and crab chowder. And according to one Shelton Herald contributor, owner Kim Soto "has tried to re-create New Orleans with the interior design as well. Photos of Crescent City scenes hang on the wall and New Orleans music plays on the sound system."
