Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Hand-made spaghetti w/ blue crab meat
$$$
Southern, French, American, Restaurant, Bar
East Riverside
"At first glance, this dish looks like spaghetti with a little crab meat, but when you taste it, it is so much more. It's actually handmade spaghetti served with blue crab meat and a colatura di alici, an anchovy sauce with a deep essence of umami. It's not super fishy, though; rather, it's a deceptively simple dish with resounding, subtle flavors of black pepper and lemon."
Cauliflower soup

Happy Hour, Full Bar, Cajun / Creole
Central Business
"The presentation of this cauliflower soup might change periodically but I had it topped with black truffles and fried oysters... It's the best of everything I love! Delicious."
Blue crab beignets
Blue crab beignets
$$$
Southern, French, American, Restaurant, Bar
East Riverside
"La Petite Grocery is one of my top five restaurants in the city, and you're making me pick one dish? Well, since the menu changes pretty regularly, I have to go with one of their staple appetizers. These crab beignets are perfectly crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and retains the delicate blue crab flavor even after being fried. Can't go wrong with anything here."
