According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Cajun meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic Cajun cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Cajun cuisine and drinks at Cafe Americain.

Cafe Americain mollifies grumbling bellies with a generous menu of Southern comfort fare, crafted from award-winning family recipes. A plate of shrimp Orleans ($15.99) supports two crabmeat-stuffed shrimp, which roll themselves into thinly sliced catfish fillets before a brief dip in the deep fryer leaves them pining for a bath of brandy tarragon sauce. For carboholics, a create-your-own-pasta option ($8.99+) invites culinary creativity by presenting patrons with a choice of four pastas, ten vegetables, and three meats––a roster that offers up the potential for no less than 26,000 possible combinations. Furl tongues around a side order of sweet-potato hush puppies ($1.99 for 3; $3.50 for 6) to augment an entree, or set them loose to keep fried catfish fingers ($8.50) from sneaking bites of a fried oyster poboy sandwich ($9.50). An egg-centric brunch menu ($7.99–$10.99) is also available, and it curbs Sunday-morning stomach pains with a satisfying smattering of Southern-inspired classics, including a breakfast quesadilla with grits and smoked gouda ($8.99) and hash browns spiced with jalapeños and bacon ($3.99).

Select a crisp white or robust red ($6+/glass) from the restaurant's wine list to swirl contemplatively during dinner conversations. Or skip straight to dessert by sampling sweet spoonfuls of mississippi mud pie ($3.99) or one of 30 rotating flavors of creamy cheesecake ($5.50). The casual dining room re-creates an authentic, jazzy New Orleans–inspired environment to match its cuisine, complete with red-brick accents, colorful murals, and seat cushions made from pillowy beignets.
