THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Michaul's Restaurant Review

: HURRICANE KATRINA: this establishment is currently closed. For a New Orleans Travel Update as well as resources, information and help click here. Every bayou cliché imaginable is used in the decoration of this restaurant targeting the tourist trade. Sooner or later, one has to confront the food, a mishmash that sometimes displays the signs of advance preparation, like a film on the tartar sauce served with fried shrimp (sorry, Cajun popcorn). Blackening is a preferred technique here; when fish is inside the dark-brown crust, it tends to be mushy. Breadcrumbs are the principal ingredient in the gummy crab cakes, and bread pudding carries a stale taste that is hard to shake without a few gulps of the mediocre coffee. Why go? Well, the zydeco music and free dance lessons, of course.
