Bourbon Street Café's board of fare floods taste buds with authentic flavors of the bayou and delivers them with a delightful drawl during any meal time. For lunch, cubicle escapees can transport their senses to the Deep South with an appetizer of spicy blackened shrimp with house-made salsa ($12.95) before devouring a noontime ultimate steak panini ($11.95), which crushes sliced shell steak, crumbled blue cheese, and red onions betwixt hot plates of iron, then serves it with house-made horseradish dressing. At the sound of the dinner bell and its accompanying supper tuba, keep it light with a catfish po’ boy ($12.95) served with fries, coleslaw, and a pickle, or flatten a hearty appetite with a Cajun sampler (blackened chicken, blackened shrimp, andouille sausage, and Creole sauce over rice and beans, $24.95) and the pasta jambalaya ($15.95)—a traditional mix of chicken, sausage, crawfish, and andouille sausage in a light spicy cream sauce. Centaurs and cyborgs, meanwhile, can savor an equally hybrid meal by popping in for a brunch of banana waffles ($14.95) or Bourbon Street breakfast tacos ($14.95), complete with complimentary brunch beverages and chef's coffee cake. Bourbon Street happily adjusts dishes upon request, so feel free to blacken, Cajunize, or vegetarianate nearly anything on the menu as you see fit.
Bourbon Street Café's festive interior dining emulates the best of its namesake, containing dark wood accents containing brightly colored walls and omitting the several thousand bead-flinging maniacs. Bring a solitary friend or a huge crowd of spouses and throw a Mardi Gras in your mouth with today's Groupon to Bourbon Street Café.

Bourbon Street serves up tasty Cajun meals that have earned it an award for Best Brunch on a Budge from Page Six Magazine. Dishes such as blackened catfish and New Orleans po boys compete for attention with the house-specialty seafood gumbo and jambalaya, in which chicken and shrimp carouse with ground zydeco notes in a creole-sauce-slathered nest of spicy rice and andouille sausage. The large eatery further captures the essence of a New Orleans–style café with its colorful wall murals, fringed tabletop lamps, and plates accompanied by Mardi Gras beads, and its multiple flat-screen TVs light up with Sunday football action when the New York Scallywags play the New England Ne’er-do-wells.
