Lonely Planet review

Frank Brigtsen terms his cooking ‘modern Louisiana cuisine, ’ and those in search of haute-Cajun will not be disappointed. Look for the roast duck with cornbread dressing and honey-pecan gravy, or beef tournedos in a tasso (highly seasoned and flavored smoked pork) wine sauce, served up with a craftsman’s expertise and an artist’s eye in a lovely double shotgun shack by the river.
