A taste of New Orleans serving Cajun-Creole comfort fare and barbecue paired with craft beer, cocktails and wine. For owner Danny Beck, southern fare isn’t exclusively marked by bold bayou, creole, or slow-smoked barbecue flavors. It’s peppered with family, friends, a sense of belonging, and nostalgia. Sinking his teeth into a perfectly fried piece of okra transports Beck back to his southeastern Kansas roots beside his great grandmother, Pearl-the namesake of his welcoming bar and eatery.
Back Seat Reviewer's recommend: Louisiana jambalaya, gumbo, almond-crusted trout, blackened catfish, mac & cheese, boudin balls, hurricane cocktails, slow-smoked pork shoulder, shrimp and grits.
