Acadia: A New Orleans Bistro Restaurant Review: Craving Cajun-Creole cuisine but can’t make a trip to New Orleans? Head to Acadia for fried soft shell crab and sheepshead; pasta jambalaya with house-made andouille sausage, tasso ham, Gulf shrimp and smoked duck; and crawfish etouffée with popcorn rice and jalapeño tartar sauce. Be sure to save room for the banana cream pie with a vanilla wafer crust topped with salted caramel and shaved chocolate. The bar extends the theme, with a selection of artisan absinthe, promoting a slightly decadent, romantic air. Bargain-minded patrons will appreciate the fixed-price, three-course dinner on Monday night's Mardi Gras “cheap eats” menu.
