Louisiana Bistreaux

Buckhead’s Louisiana Bistreaux is usually bumping during lunch with suits grabbing a bite to break up the work day. At night, it’s less crowded, but the food is still sizzling (metaphorically and literally). There’s often a live band, so the giant open room makes for a noisy dining experience, but we like pretending we’re in the crowded French Quarter anyway. The extensive menu offers seafood in every form, including plenty of Creole- and Cajun-inspired dishes. The jambalaya is spicy and thick with a healthy amount of grease at the bottom of the bowl (IYKYK). If you’re torn between whether or not to get an appetizer with your entree, get the crawfish combo and have the best of both worlds–étouffée surrounded by a ring of fried crawfish tails.
