Cajun cuisine is considered rustic because it makes use of local swamp ingredients, relies on simple preparation, and causes diners with food allergies to sneeze Mardi Gras beads. Savor the beady aroma of authentic Cajun and Creole dishes with today's Groupon: for $20, you'll get $40 worth of classic New Orleans fare at K-Joe's Cajun & Creole Cuisine in the French Quarter.
K-Joe's unexpected menu features not only Cajun and Creole dishes, such as the chicken and sausage jambalaya ($13.95), but also boasts a selection of Italian entrees such as canneloni ($14.95). For an early-morning kick in the palate, sample the breakfast offerings, including Cajun-style morning munchables such as the jambalaya omelette, stuffed with rice, sausage, shrimp, and cheese ($11.95), which transforms into a burst of kinetic energy under the nimble fingers of Gambit. Afternoon favorites include oyster, catfish, and shrimp po' boys ($10.95) and fried seafood platters ($14.95–$17.95). Complement any meal on the menu with Faroldi's signature starter of onion petals with crawfish sauce ($8.95) and a specialty dessert of bread pudding with bananas-Foster sauce ($4.95).
Chef Joseph Faroldi's classic dishes are the culmination of his studies at the Culinary Institute of America and his life-long residence in New Orleans. Raised in the French Quarter, he began cooking on his grandmother's stove, learning early how to make guests feel at home by concocting flavorsome fare from local seafood and produce. His open and inviting restaurant is vibrantly decorated with jazz instruments, French flourishes, and the ghost of Tennessee Williams.
