K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Long before there was an Emeril or a John Besh, the national culinary stage already had space for legendary Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme. Prudhomme is still firmly in charge of operations at the restaurant that made him famous, but Paul Miller serves at the helm in the kitchen. Both are natives of Opelousas, La., and Miller turns out Cajun-Creole fare worthy of the master's stamp. Hallmarks of the daily changing menu include super-rich sauces; the definitive blackened fish and beef dishes; intensely seasoned, roux-thickened gumbos; fried crawfish tails (in season); and classic bread pudding and a sweet potato-pecan pie with a big dollop of Chantilly cream. Crafting a wine list for this food is difficult, but the selections recognize that big flavors require big wines to stand up to them. Plus, there's a smart list of Champagnes and sparkling wines to act as palate refreshers for Prudhomme's robust fare. Lunch is deli-style, so if you have only one opportunity to dine at K-Paul's, make it dinner. The two levels are stylishly lined with bare brick, framed wall art and gleaming wood floors. The balcony and enclosed patio can be delightful in good weather. For an authentic New Orleans dining experience, look no further than K-Paul's.
