Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen pork cheek, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Cajun fare at Bourbon Street Grille in Monona.
The menu at Bourbon Street Grille features spicy Cajun dishes served in a dining room situated by the water. Like grizzlies forced to participate in team-building exercises, forks and knives work in tandem to tear into two catfish fillets served blackened or pecan-crusted with honey butter ($13), or the New Orleans stuffed chicken, a poultry breast loaded with Monterey jack and mushrooms and coated in alfredo sauce ($13). Southern-oriented cooks simmer staples such as alligator étouffée, a stew of alligator and tasso ham served over rice, and jambalaya, both of which are served with a corn bread muffin to sop up broth or tears of joy ($8 for lunch; $12 for dinner). Delicate Louisiana strudel showcases chicken, sausage, and pepper jack cheese wrapped in a flaky phyllo dough crust with a side of Cajun cream cheese ($9 for lunch; $13 for dinner).
Bourbon Street Grille
Situated on the banks of the Yahara River, Bourbon Street Grille brings traditional American flavors to Wisconsin in the form of po boys, jambalaya, and etouffee. The aromas of meat and seafood platters infused with seasonings roll off the outdoor deck and rooftop patio, where diners revel in Louisiana flavors as they watch boats drift past. Inside the dining room, 14 TVs broadcast sports, and pool tables and arcade games mill about waiting to host a friendly competition. River wayfarers can tie their dinghies up in the marina and slip inside for a meal thanks to the restaurant's 13 boat slips and security team comprised of mythical Sirens.
