THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Zimm’s Little Deck Restaurant Review

: The Zimmerman clan of La Colombe d’Or fame calls this property a fancy ice house, but Zimm’s Little Deck is more than that. The shoebox-size oyster bar, with its French posters and petanque (French lawn bowling) court on the patio, is friendly and casual with down-home dishes. The kitchen turns out hearty gumbos, shrimp rémoulade and croque monsieur hushpuppies. But the stand-out dishes are the fried oyster and shrimp “poor boys” and their “rich boy” cousins like the Long Island quack: duck thigh confit with arugula and seasonal fruit preserves stuffed into a crunchy baguette. Sticky, sweet praline bourbon bread pudding may pack on the pounds, but it’s worth it. Specialty drinks include hurricanes and gin fizzes, but there’s a decent wine list and plenty of craft beers on the bar list as well.

Zimm's Little Deck is a Neighborhood Gem

Zimm’s Little Deck serves up seafood, sandwiches and gumbo in an atmosphere reflecting New Orleans charm. With its French posters, flickering gas lights, bentwood chairs, outdoor fireplace and large outdoor pétanque court, Zimm’s Little Deck offers a friendly and casual vibe with down-home dishes. The Zimmerman clan refers to this venue a fancy ice house, for my wife Penny and I, Zimm’s Little Deck is much more than that.

Based on popular Cajun cuisine from “po' boysâ€
