Thank God for Groupon coupons! We had a coupon for $70 that we paid $35 for. We ordered a grande Martini, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. Unfortunately, neither one of us was a fan of the martini, it may just have been that both us like flavored drinks.

The appetizers were interesting. The deviled eggs with jumbo lump crabmeat tasted like mayonnaise.

The flash fried calamari was delicious but very sparse batter. The Louisiana cocktail sauce killed it though, it was a marinara sauce but it tasted like lemons.

We ordered the mussels because it was voted the best mussels according to nola.com. They definitely give you  a ton of mussels, but it had a very gritty texture. The mussel flavor was overwhelming even though it was cooked in a butter garlic oil sauce. Maybe it’s because mussels season is over? So we didn’t get the best quality. Not sure, but I have definitely had better mussels in New Orleans.

We also ordered the world’s most expensive fried chicken, 4 pieces for $18. So although we ended up paying $50 for this meal (plus tax and tip), it was definitely not worth $85.
