The chefs at the newly opened French Quarter Grille spice up the catfish entrees, seafood gumbo, and grilled meats that populate a menu of authentic Cajun specialties. Diners can acclimate tongues to French-influenced flavors with a starter of crawfish beignets—fried, fluffy pillows dunked in a spicy jalapeño-and-roasted-corn tartar sauce ($9.95 for dinner; $8.95 for lunch). Attentive servers whisk steaming helpings of blackened-catfish gumbo spooned over dirty rice ($15.95) to white-cloth-draped tables before going back to the kitchen. Grillers blacken the rib-eye pontchartrain, smother it in shrimp, crab, and crawfish, and douse the lot in a mushroom brandy cream sauce ($29.95). Patrons can size up peppered pork tenderloins, which are flame-licked over a leftover science-fair volcano before being awarded a mango-pineapple chutney ($16.95). Diners devour forkfuls amid golden walls as the glow from a chandelier reflects in French Quarter Grille’s gilded mirror.
