New Orleans...in Etobicoke
Nelson: Top rated restaurant in Toronto, I tried to come here several times and they were too full. This time we took a late seating and finally got the chance to try this restaurant.
We start with the sour dough as a New Orleans restaurant should and it comes out nice and hot. Not that sour, but still very delicious. A good start.
|We tried the special appetizer, crab cakes ($12.99). They were nicely spiced and had a lot of flavour due to the spices, but at the same time it wasn't overpowering or too spicy. A bit too much bread crumbs and not enough crab, but the crab that was there is provided a lot of flavour It was deep fried nicely and had a great presentation.|
|Kitty had the shrimp creole which is described as shrimp sauteed in white wine, roasted garlic and Cajun spice. Served with rice, creole sauce and seasonal vegetables ($25.95). Kitty enjoyed this dish and commented that everything was very flavourful.|
I tried the New Orleans Fisherman's plate which includes blackened fish, Cajun calamari, and coconut beer shrimp. Served with rice and seasonal vegetables ($32.95). The fish was good and plentiful, although quite blackened which I suppose is the way it should be. The calamari was a little soggy, but maybe that's due to the sauce that was on top. Also may be due to the delay in eating it from picture taking. The coconut shrimp were amazing and my favourite part of the dish.
Overall good food and attention to detail. The owner is from Eastern Europe, but learned New Orleans cooking and brought it to Toronto. He's very friendly and stopped to chat with us. I would recommend this restaurant and the online rankings are probably right in that it is one of the better restaurants in Etobicoke.
