A Taste of Louisiana Culture & Cuisine
A locavore concept, Evangeline specializes in fresh, seasonal cuisine with ingredients purchased directly from local markets and fisherman. The fresh catfish, a house specialty by itself, in the jambalaya, or on a poor boy, is wild caught – not farm raised. The same care goes into the procurement of local Gulf shrimp, Louisiana blue crab, and Acadian sausage. For lunch or dinner, lucky travelers and locals alike can feast on shrimp and grits, sautéed crab cakes, or crawfish sausage.
Evangeline also hosts a full menu of Louisiana microbrews available both on draught and in bottles. There are so many unique and flavorful styles brewed year round and seasonally around southern Louisiana. There is something for everyone from light beers such as wheat ale made with Louisiana sugar cane all the way to dark stout made with Louisiana sweet potatoes. Plus styles in between like golden ale made with nearby honey and porter made with New Orleans coffee.
Evangeline is simplistic in menu design and service, with portions that allow multiple sampling opportunities of fresh Louisiana grown cuisine. From the Sweet Potato Frites to the crab and corn chowder, the casual atmosphere offers the perfect alternative to those searching for something in between Bourbon Street and white tablecloth dining. Evangeline also features a unique French Quarter courtyard with rare views of the city and a cozy fire pit lounge.
