Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Cajun fare and drinks at Bourbon Street Bar & Grill in University Heights.
Bourbon Street Bar & Grill channels the streets of New Orleans with its snazzy décor and Cajun-infused menu, which sports an eclectic ensemble of largely handheld creations. Po' boys sling flavorful, rémoulade-slathered blackened, spicy chicken onto awaiting tongue trampolines ($8) and the bourbon-blue burger, starring 8 ounces of apple-bourbon-glazed kobe beef under a marquee of blue cheese and bacon satisfies bovine-deprived bellies ($12). The hearty andouille mac 'n' cheese lulls stomachs into a creamy stupor ($11) and a grilled selection of skewers adorned with savory veggies ($4), garlic-rosemary shrimp ($6), or butter-dipped lobster ($7) make for a sharable snack or a lance for lilliputians. Add a fresh-air infusion to the meal by dining on the outdoor patio, designed to perfectly mimic the Louisiana-based Bourbon Street.
Bourbon Street's lengthy beer list boasts a bevy of brews available in 16-ounce pints or 32-ounce half yards, such as the Miller Lite and Coors Light classics ($4/pint), Bear Republic ($5.75/pint), Rogue Dead Guy ($6.50/pint), and Eel River ($5.75/pint). Visit during happy hour for half-priced, half-human, half-yard brews, $6.99 entrees and $3 sides, or combine delicious drafts with whimsy at Bourbon Street’s oft-themed special events
