Classic New Orleans dish with chicken andouille sausage, seasonal seafood, peppers, celery, onion and rice, in a spicy tomato broth.
I had the Jambalaya for supper and then followed it with a Bananas Foster and both were the best I've ever had. The Jambalaya is a far trek along the path of great Jambalayas; much farther along the path than everyone's introduction to the dish at their local BJ's and then some. Everything was very balanced and for someone like me who is pretty sensitive to spice, the kitchen sent out an extremely delicately spiced plate, but not under seasoned. It was perfect. The Bananas Foster was, sort of unfortunately, better than my Grandma's in every way. I have a sweet tooth but sometimes a grandma wants to make their dessert at sweet as them even if it's too much. Again, this dessert was also very well done, the balance between sweetness and caramelization was not overpowering the actual flavor of the banana. In other words, you could actually tell there was banana in the dish, it never felt like I was eating some sweet sludge with pretty colors and a nice plating. Now, the food was great and no doubt the reason I was there, but the energy and the ambiance of the people and venue is something I had not experienced before. Everyone was having so much fun and smiling. I believe it was the combination of the great food and atmosphere. One of my new favorite places, and probably anyone's one they stop by.
The jambalaya is amazing!
