The menu is small, but sufficient – highlighting all my favorite New Orleans dishes including fried oysters, sausage-biscuit & gravy, fried shrimp & oyster po boys, succulent steak po boys, bbq yard-bird po boys, gumbo, red beans and rice, and more. They also have a full selection of Abita Beers, the local beer of New Orleans, and Cafe Du Monde chicory blended coffee and beignets which are fried dough topped with confectioners sugar, similar to the Italian zeppole or the American carnival version – funnel cake.
On my last visit I indulged in a Half & Half Po Boy with shrimp and oysters, and a lightly sweetened iced tea. I topped the meal off with a plate of the beignets. I left satisfied, but not overly full. The bill for my girlfriend and I was $40, and that included two sandwiches, two iced teas, and the beignets. With an $8 tip it was a late lunch bargain, the likes of which are getting harder to find in the borough of Brooklyn.
