THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rodeaux Cajun Kitchen Restaurant Review: This curvy former nightclub sports a hemispheric roof, portholes, a bell tower and a neon facade. Inside, the huge, dark space offers plenty of room for both diners and dancers. The name implies Cajun cuisine, but Tex-Mex, pasta, burgers and poor boys also find a home here. A hands-down favorite appetizer is the flamiadeaux, a huge serving of sautéed shrimp, scallops, blackened oysters and crawfish tails swimming in a rich cayenne-laced sauce and topped with a thick layer of cheese. The fried Rodeaux seafood platter is darn near perfect, but the Atchafalaya grilled snapper filet is better, loaded with sautéed shrimp, crab meat and mushrooms. Another pleasant surprise is the dark roux base of the shrimp and crawfish étouffée, which are part of a half-and-half combo.
