Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as snapping turtle, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of Cajun fare for dinner at K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen.
Chef Paul Prudhomme and the skillet-savvy staff at K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen have jazzed up evening dining with savory smoked meats, blackened fish, and spicy Cajun fare for more than 30 years. None of the restaurant’s three kitchens has a freezer, so chefs constantly seek out fresh ingredients, remixing the menu daily depending on their supplies. On a past menu, a turtle soup stocked with boiled eggs and beef tenderloin raced pan-fried rabbit tenderloin to tables in a culinary re-enactment of The Tortoise and The Hare ($6.95+ for appetizers). For the main course ($29.95+), chefs blackened a buttery drum fillet in a cast-iron skillet, while a classic crawfish etouffée evoked sultry summer nights with a sauce made from rich seafood stock and bite-sized jazz-trombone solos. K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen enforces a business-casual dress code to cultivate a classy atmosphere and keep chair legs from being gnawed by feral flip-flops.
