THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Alcatraces Restaurant Review

: Welcoming, homespun tchotchkies with a Southern theme line the walls and help this narrow storefront achieve its friendly neighborhood feeling. Chef Gator Thompson hits the nail on the head with Creole and Cajun favorites tweaked to grab the attention of a California-cuisine crowd. The jovial crowd seems to be enjoying it all---thick crawfish bisque, robust gumbo, nutty étouffée, to name a few. A Creole ratatouille laden with marinated okra, roasted eggplant and zucchini, served with a salad and basil vinaigrette, exemplifies the kitchen’s expertise of Southern inspiration with California execution. Don’t miss the sweet potato pie or the chocolate bread pudding for dessert.
