A Taste Of New Orleans In Los Angeles

by Kim (writer), Los Angeles, August 04, 2008


All encased in historic Leimert Park: Scrumptious food, great music, matchless history and more...

A boulevard in one of the most integral sections of Los Angeles, encompassing some of the most authentic Jazz, Blues, African clothing, jewelry, posters, CD's, cards, artifacts, books, coffee venues, and food from Bar-B-Que to Soul, and Los Angeles to New Orleans style cooking. There are also opportunities to hear rare narratives about the "City of the Angels" from local residents.

It is on this street at 4317 Degnan, you'll find "New Orleans Vieux Carre Creole Cuisine”. The restaurant was opened on June 22, 2008 by a native New Orleans family who now reside in Leimert Park.

When you enter the festively adorned restaurant, you are warmly greeted by a host. The vivid artistry on the walls of various native Jazz musicians and specific places take you back to Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The atmosphere is relaxing and alluring as the smells of food and sound of music compel one to sit down and enjoy.

I was not disappointed in any aspect of my dining experience. It was wonderful listening to the sounds of New Orleans and enjoying the great meal.

Among the many succulent choices on menu, Authentic File Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya, Catfish, Crawfish Etouffee, and even Crawfish Pie. There are non-New Orleans Style dishes as well. Desserts range from Beignets to Peach Cobbler.

I'd recommend trying it on a Friday night then stroll across the street to the famous World Stage to hear some Jazz or on a Saturday afternoon listen to Jazz at the World Stage at 12:00 noon, then go for lunch at "Vieux Carre". You may even consider some shopping for that unique gift suited for any occasion at one of the shops and The Eso Won Bookstore located on the innovative street that is akin to a shady and bustling lane.
