I enjoyed the energy and charismatic male owner. The food was S O V E R Y G O O D and surprisingly the house wine was not only good but cheap! Thanx!

What You'll Get


Creating a meal from scratch is both challenging and delicious, much like playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a clarinet made out of a candy cane. Master meal melding with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $39 for a two-hour New Orleans creole and cajun cooking class for Two ($100 Value)

Lead by restaurant co-owner Chef Anthony, a 30-year veteran of restaurants in New Orleans’s French quarter, each class will walk students through the construction of a complete Creole meal. Chef Anthony begins by unveiling his recipe for Cajun gumbo, which is served by the cup as a starter. After that, it’s on to an appetizer, entrée, and dessert that will change with each class. The 10–12 students present will watch Chef Anthony work his culinary magic, jumping in to lend a hand at crucial moments. Classes will be held every Tuesday–Thursday at 6:45 p.m. and on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. To stay authentic to his creole recipes, Chef Anthony cannot substitute ingredients to accommodate special requests for vegetarian meals, gluten-free dishes, or Mardi Gras–bead étouffée.

  • $17 for $35 worth of creole and cajun food and drink

The kitchen's Louisiana favorites include fried catfish po-boys ($8.50), cajun crawfish etouffee ($13.95), red beans and rice with andouille sausage ($12) and whiskey-infused bread pudding ($7). Diners can also sip on hurricanes ($8.50) made with the authentic Pat O'Brien's recipe. See the full menu.
