For those who seek and follow Houston’s true Southern Creole food, there is a reason to celebrate the return of Crescent City Beignets. Formerly near Lamar High School, this River Oaks-area favorite closed over a year ago, re-opened at 6383 Westheimer and then sold that franchise. Finally, the prized cafe opened again on Good Friday, 2016 – obviously as a result of the prayers of those who had grown to love it and relied on its true-to-New Orleans style.
This restaurant is much more than mere beignets and chicory coffee, although that is quite enough for some.
Take a quick imaginary tour of New Orleans via the huge photos on display as you wait patiently for your Red Beans & Rice.
The Presidential Gumbo, loaded with Shrimp, Oysters and Okra, is topped with the perfect amount of white rice and arrives at your table steaming hot.
The collard greens are hammy and laced with onions. A dash of Louisiana hot sauce is all you need!
Who wouldn’t love a Muffaletta that looks like this?
To know Crescent City Beignets is to love her! Glad she’s back.
