A restaurant week retrospective

What a conundrum. Do I run my reviews from the most recent restaurant week visits or the ones from LAST restaurant week that I hadn’t gotten around to finishing up?

Okay, oldest first: Acadiana, our first visit in September 2006’s restaurant week. Promising Southern Louisiana style cooking this was the big success of our late 2006 RW outing. With entree prices between $12 and $27, with most being around $14, Acadiana’s prices are fairly reasonable even outside of RW. It’s when you opt for the appetizer menu choices that you end up more heavily dinged. The lowest price options are a trio of deviled eggs or chicken and sausage gumbo for $7, but don’t need to concern yourself with the more costly oysters, fried tomatos or goat cheese tart – if you order anything other than the gumbo you’re a raving fool.

The entrees were also good but they suffered from following that amazing appetizer. How could anything else measure up? I had the tenderloin, my darling girlfriend had the New Orleans style barbeque shrimp. Both were good, but did I mention the gumbo? We’re not normally desert people so it’s faded from my memory. Not bad, but nothing standout enough to recall.

We’ll definitely be back.
