Restaurant des Familles
Restaurant des Familles Review
No time for a trip to Cajun country? Well, this restaurant, about a 20-minute drive from central New Orleans, is the next best thing (although you'd better ask for directions when reserving a table). Just a few yards from the vast windows are the slow-moving waters of Bayou des Familles, providing a dramatic vista. Elegantly illuminated at night, the huge Acadian-style raised cottage has a kitchen that produces familiar, and locally beloved, seafood in the Creole style—shrimp rémoulade, crawfish étouffée, shrimp Diane, and crawfish-stuffed rainbow trout. The seafood gumbo is one of the best around. The restaurant closes at 6 pm on Sunday.
