Toulouse Petit offers a fine dining experience that few other restaurants have ever attempted to reach, let alone master. Every bite contains an intoxicating richness that only arises from sheer culinary dexterity. From the modern presentation to the unexpected ingredients, tradition bursts from each recipe but creative twists elevate them.

For snacks, small plates, large plates, and sides, all delicious and inspired by French creole cookin’, Restaurant Roux never disappoints. Jalapeno Cheddar Hushpuppies and Shrimp & Grits are just the tip of the iceberg. Restaurant Roux also whips up an insanely tasty and unique brunch every weekend, and the cocktail list is inspired from Bourbon Street itself.

Marcela’s Creole Cookery brings New Orleans to Seattle both in spirit and in cooking. With Bourbon Street art on the walls, upbeat jazz floating through the air, and the enticing aromas coming from the kitchen, it covers all the bases, even serving up specialty cocktails. The Po’ Boys are locally famous, with French baguettes cooked just right and packed full.
