Ever since New Orleans found the wormhole in the depths of its grandmother's armoire, it's been hopping by the Toledo area in hopes of turning the town Cajun. Take a bite out of its base camp with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Louisiana-Creole bites and beverages at Fat Fish Blue, located in Perrysburg.
Channeling the rich history and cultural charm of New Orleans' Bourbon Street, Fat Fish Blue treats customers to a potpourri of flavor and fun. The enticing dinner and specialties and desserts menus sport a super-sized satchel's worth of soul-warming sustenance, pre-heating patrons' inner Arethas with appetizers such as fried green tomatoes ($5.99) and swamp bake ($7.99), a cheesy spinach and artichoke dip. Classic Louisiana-style sandwiches range from the fried shrimp po' boy ($9.99) to the country Cajun chicken sandwich ($8.99) with blackening spice, smoky barbecue sauce, jack cheese, and onion crisps. To stay light on your carpet-cutters for an after-dinner dance, opt for some gussied-up fresh greens (starting at $4.99 for a big house salad). Or, to make sure you're safely weighed down in case a balloon salesman hands you all his merchandise, fill your belly to the brim with a serving of mumbo jambalaya ($5.59 for a small, $9.99 for a large) or southern fried chicken ($12.99) with peppercorn gravy, corn bread, mashed potatoes, and fresh veggies.
Fat Fish Blue doles out much more than just dinner delights, including live entertainment five nights a week; friendly, home-style service; and decadent desserts that might make you quickly up your online bid for a quadruple-barreled digestive system. Sink your spoon into a sweet and spicy slice of cinnamon roll bread pudding ($5.29) as you listen to the sweet and spicy sounds of local blues artists, or utilize a big bite of Zambo's peanut butter pie ($5.29) to show off your spit-take when you finally get that joke from high school.
