MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Calorie-conscious, vegetable-venerating locals may not seem like the ideal audience for rich Cajun and Creole fare, but this downtown veteran has carved out a niche with its Louisiana spin on SoCal-chic plates. With wall-to-wall crowds nightly, risk happy hour sans reservations at your own peril. But know that this food is worth it, as it follows these contours: Southern influences with creative touches. The deep-dish biscuit dough “pizza” stuffed with barbecue pork, Tillamook cheddar and Paulie’s pomegranate-habanero sauce is a crowd favorite, as is the cast-iron cornbread and Dungeness crab hushpuppies. However, the kitchen also flaunts real range-roasted carrots and beets topped with jerk chickpeas promise to drive vegetarians senseless with pleasure.
