This paean to the Big Easy attempts to bring the entire French Quarter to a single building on Restaurant Row. Inside you’ll find hokey reproductions of nearly every NOLA cliché (flickering gas lamps, a wrought-iron balcony). Sadly, the glory of Creole cooking rarely shines through. A bowl of gumbo was underseasoned, and a fried oyster po’ boy lacked a crisp crust on both the bread and mollusks. Stick with the basics—jumbo, juicy head-on shrimp were cooked in a lemony butter sauce with Abita beer, a Louisiana brew that is also available on tap.
