Mulate's Restaurant Review

: Mulate's huge (40,000 square feet) restaurant and dance hall, lined with prints and artifacts, evokes the atmosphere of Louisiana's bayou country, especially for first-time visitors to New Orleans. Tables covered in red-checkered cloths dot the spacious dance floor, where patrons twirl and shuffle to the lusty sounds of live bands. The Cajun-inspired menu proves that ethnic fare can be both fairly authentic and unpredictable in quality. The food ranges from a crisp, minimally greasy baked duck that sports a fairly tasty gravy to dishes in liquid form, such as zydeco gumbo, a blend of okra, shrimp, chicken and a good version of andouille sausage. The entrée list is a hotbed of inconsistency, including a blackened steak that would have been better served with a machete. Servers present trays of desserts at the tables, bearing such standards as bread pudding, pecan pie and Key lime pie.
