Soup: French Market Soup

A beautiful clear soup of roasted chicken and baked ham featuring notes of onion, garlic, and celery with cannellini and garnished with crispy chicken cracklings. Served with a freshly baked potato roll.

Sandwich: Croque Monsieur

This French classic is a layered with ham and gruyere, parmesan, and a creamy béchamel sauce, finished with fresh thyme and toasted in the oven. Served with your choice of chips.

Pasta: Spaghetti ala Carbonara

Spaghetti pasta served in a creamy sauce with garlic, onions and bacon with Parmesan cheese.

Entrée: Creole Crawfish Benedict

This is certainly a Southern take on a classic benedict. We start with a base of English muffin topped with thick sliced ham and layered with two perfectly poached eggs and a creamy crawfish Piquant.
