Crustaceans - CLOSED
Dallas, TX 75226
Dallas Observer's Description
The silver lining to the Katrina storm cloud has come in the form of Crustaceans. Relax; we're not talking about shrimp and crabs raining from the sky--we mean the restaurant next to The Green Room that serves the little guys in authentic Cajun style. A spacious, leafy courtyard in the back is a better seating option than the comfortable but humdrum interior, and there are still kinks to be worked out in the service. Similarly, the food is nothing fancy, mostly Cajun standards like gumbo, shrimp creole and crawfish étouffée, but they're done so well that it's clear New Orleans' loss of chef Ronald Honoré is Dallas' impressive gain.
