'Fat Tuesday' ain't over

Mardi Gras celebrations don’t have to necessarily be in New Orleans… Capital Hill’s 18th Amendment Restaurant and Bar certainly thinks differently. Owner Vicky Henderson believes Fat Tuesday is a great way to invite patrons to take a break from the DC scene and escape into a little bit of New Orleans culture while sampling traditional creole platters. Celebrity Chef Teddy Folman helped revamp and refresh the restaurant’s menu for mouth watering Lousiana favorites.

Looking to try a delicious  shrimp po’ boy, gumbo, or traditional king cake?

Cajun Takes DC

D.C. tastemakers attended the VIP opening of The Cajun Experience restaurant! It’s the newest addition to the Dupont dining scene.

A week before Fat Tuesday the celebration couldn’t be more timely. We caught up with  Executive Chef Bryan Crosswhite who boasts he has no formal training in the kitchen… his food all comes from family traditions and passed down recipes.

Check out the story I shared on WUSA9′ s Morning Show.  

Try The Cajun Experience for yourself at 1825 18th Street NW! Live music on Friday and Saturday Nights with patio seating in the Spring.
