This candle-lit Southern eatery dishes out creative, comforting takes on New Orleans classics like cornmeal-fried catfish, rabbit and andouille gumbo, fried soft shell crab, and an epically large brown sugar-brined pork chop. Every week, Acadia offers a Mardi Gras Mondays “Cheap Eats” Menu with $10 entrees, like gulf shrimp and crawfish tails with a creamy, sherried tomato sauce over fettucine, blackened catfish with hollandaise sauce, and a cup of Gumbo, red beans, and dirty rice. Whatever you do, order the Louisiana barbecue shrimp in a lick-the-bowl-clean-it’s-so-good sauce of white wine, black pepper, Worcestershire, lemon, and plenty of butter.
