Riverbend - Creole Cuisine

NOTE:  I talked to the folks at Riverbend and they don't split checks for large groups, so PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING CASH!!

It's lucky for St. Louis that the chef of Riverbend relocated here from New Orleans after Katrina. The flavors there make me feel like I'm back in the Big Easy! (The crawfish etouffee is amazing!)

The venue itself is not that big, so spaces are limited! However, they are ok with up to 18.  I just spoke to someone at Riverbend and was told that they don't split checks for large groups. So please remember to bring cash.

We have a group member that is moving here from New Orleans in the next couple fo weeks, so hopefully Dennis can be the final judge of the authenticity of the menu. You can preview the menu on the Riverbend website: http://www.riverbendbar.com/

NOTE: Thursdays are also "fried seafood night" at Riverbend...

    I enjoyed the food, and I enjoyed meeting all the new people! I had the crawfish etouffee and the bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Yum! This was my first Meetup event of any type, and it was fun! Lynn did a great job in organizing this.

    A really nice group of folks. It was fun to meet the newcomers and I can tell they're going to be great dinner companions.

    The food was simply incredible! And I loved talking to everyone. I really enjoyed meeting all the first-timers too! I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

    I had RSVP'd weeks ago and really looking forward to tonight. However, I just changed my RSVP to +1 and it bumped me to the waitlist. :(
    What to do?

    • Lynn D

      I just made the change so you and your "plus one" are both showing as Yes. See you at dinner! :-)

    Okay, I just looked at the menu (for the umpteenth time) and I am officially drooling. The only decision I've made so far is that I'll eat too much.

      Jim, that makes two of us, I'm afraid. But it sure will be fun...

    I might miss out on this, looks like I'll be working late.

      Darn! I was really hoping for your authenticity rating for the place...seeing how you just moved from there. We'll look forward to seeing you at another dinner soon. :-)

    I have to be out of town for work Thursday and now won't get back in time to join you. :( Please eat enough for me, too...

    March 24, 2014

    • Lynn D

      Tori, the sad news is that I'll probably eat enough for three people if I don't watch myself... ;-) We'll miss you!

    I'm thrilled that there will be several "first-timers" at this meetup! I'm looking forward to meeting each of you!

    I'm planning to come, and this will be my first event with this group.

    I just moved to St. Charles from Nola on Monday, so this should be interesting. Might be an issue with a weeknight, I'll have to check with work.

      It looks like Randy is coming from over your way. I wonder if he could give you a ride....?

    I'm French Creole and my family is from NOLA so I think I can help out with the judging. It should be fun.

      Fabulous! I'm looking forward to hearing your review. :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
