1) We hadn’t done brunch together, just the two of us, in forever. I know, can you believe it?!
2) Acadiana was one of the many restaurants supporting my nonprofit organization in September so I wanted to show both the restaurant and my organization some love!
Acadiana is a self-described “contemporary Louisiana fish house”. As part of their Sunday brunch a jazz quartet is present to play tunes throughout the restaurant too!
After we submitted our orders to the waiter, two DELICIOUS biscuits with a cream cheese jalapeno spread were brought out to us.
If you choose to come to Sunday brunch here the only option you can choose is their three-course for $29 price-fix menu. You are not able to order a la carte. Disclaimer: I actually didn’t know this before Tommy and I came here, but it ended up working out!
I decided to order a blood orange mimosa because with the price fix menu each mimosa was $2.00. (I decided to be good and only got one).
For my first course I decided to try the charbroiled oysters with garlic butter, parmesan romano cheese, warm french bread. It was heavenly.
Tommy decided to try the smoked chicken and andouille sausage gumbo for his appetizer. (Not pictured).
Tommy had the “grillades and grits” (smothered medallions of veal, creamy jalapeno cheese grits).
For my dessert I chose the french market beignets, (of course) with chicory coffee crème anglaise, while Tommy settled on the peach pie. (Not pictured).
We made sure to share our choices with each other to be able to sample all of the yummy goodness. 🙂
The food was delicious, albeit a little rich. The portion sizes were very satisfactory as well!
