When Thomas Jefferson purchased Louisiana, he instantly acquired an inexhaustible supply of French cuisine and the burden of maintaining all the area's lawns. Feast on TJ's legacy sans the herculean chores with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of New Orleans-style cuisine at French Quarter Bar & Grill in Pompano Beach.
The culinary crafters at French Quarter Bar & Grill curtail spells of hunger with a menu of New Orleans cuisine derived from Cajun and French influences. Open a festival of flavor with an appetizer of flame-grilled black-and-blue oysters, which are sprinkled with a Cajun seasoning and crumbled blue cheese ($9.95), while sipping a tasty libation, such as an Argentinean malbec ($6). Entree options range from the spicy shrimp creole ($14.95) to the lightly breaded, thin-cut fried catfish ($13.95). The Canal Street burger ($9.95), fused with Cajun and barbecue seasoning, corn salsa, a pair of bacon slices, melted cheddar, and a duo of onion rings suitable to be worn on a thick or gloved finger, can be augmented with a plaudit-worthy Kendall Jackson chardonnay ($10).
The outdoor patio wraps guests in a blanket of fresh air and mellifluous sound waves emanating from the instruments of local musicians, who play live most nights. Listen intently or nonchalantly while treating taste buds to a crawfish étouffée ($15.95). During crawfish season, French Quarter Bar & Grill channels New Orleans by flying in the delicious cuisine directly from the Louisiana metropolis.
