have been to my fair share of restaurants ,
I am a gourmet cook and commercial fisherman.
I also know what New Orleans food is suppose to at least emulate, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE i would NEVER go again .
From the crappy jalapeno cornbread to the soggy jambalaya,, the shrimp feast was horrid they were soggy spongy shrimp that are claimed to be shipped from the bayou,cooked FOUR ways and ,covered in zatarans crab boil mix , butter oil and crappy seasoning , the craw fish ettoufou was the worst thing i have eaten in my life the chef does not know how to make a proper roux or sauce , the craw fish were gray and tiny after a bite that was it for me, dont go near the specially flown in red snapper with creole mustad sauce (basically mustard and white wine )to smother this horrible quality fish ,flownin ""I dont think so""
Did i mention i am also a commercial fisherman !
Last the was the the Cocky derby wearing guy with his stained shirt that he has probably worn for the previous 5 days who ran the place! With his decaying teeth and ""make you want to puke smile"", and total control freak attitude who had basically no control over his kitchen or wait staff. GOD HELP SYOSSET ! I totally agree with Amal D. So go if you want to pay for bad taste in you mouth for years !
