What You'll Get
You are what you eat, which is why diners at Cajun seafood restaurants tend to crab-walk home. Enjoy tasty Cajun fare and learn a new gait with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Cajun cuisine and drinks at Café Roux in Leawood.
Café Roux's bayou-born menu depicts spicy Cajun flare threaded through a fabric of southern cuisine that can be washed down with a variety of wines and bottled or draft beers. The Louisiana Boil splashes up an aquatic jamboree of whole crawfish, clams, shrimp, scuba-diving equipment, and sweet corn ($22), which partners well with many of the craft brews on tap. Dusted in cornmeal and lightly fried before being tucked into a toasted french roll, an oyster po boy ($13) longs for a peppery smooch from a glass of Punto Final malbec ($9), and the blue lump crab in the crab louis salad remains aloof in its fortress of greens and asparagus surrounded by a moat of house louis dressing ($16). A bed of roasted sweet potatoes topped with a sunny-side-up egg hosts a peacefully delicious culture clash of tender chicken and andouille-sausage hash ($14).
The wood-grain bar and contemporary décor entice diners for a predinner specialty cocktail such as the bubbly French 75, which, like a New Year's celebration or a book-stacking competition at the public library, includes sips of champagne ($8). Live music on the weekends encourages lingering and listening long after meals have vanished.
