Dinner at The Big Easy
My husband, two friends, and I went to dinner at The Big Easy in downtown Raleigh on Friday night. It’s been a while since I’ve written about a Raleigh restaurant, so here ya go.
The location is fun – right on Fayetteville. Frankly, the place is worth visiting just to get an Abita Amber on tap. That’s one of my very favorite beers – and it’s much better on tap than in a bottle (though still absolutely worth drinking). The guys got A Taste of Louisiana – jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans and rice. Jason said my mom’s versions of those dishes are better, but they were still good. They enjoyed it – especially the alligator. My girl friend got seafood gumbo and liked that. I’m not a huge fan of Cajun food, so I went for the strip steak with bleu cheese. It was cooked well, and the mashed potatoes were pretty good. Then each couple got a brownie with ice cream – delish. We all agreed that we’d like to go again. And next time it’ll be our turn to use a Restaurant.com coupon. We also want to check out the Oxford Gastropub.
