Lache pas la patate, Mon cher!

Lache pas la patate, Mon cher! - Don't let go of the potato, my dear!

We stopped here a few months back in the early beginnings and I'm eager to go back. It appears from the most recent Scene article (below) that the menu has expanded. The jambalaya was VERY good and I've never found one I really liked. I loved the catfish appetizer and I don't care for catfish - just saying - I was trying to expand...

I'm always on the lookout for a good Cajun/Creole restaurant - po-boys, etouffee, jambalaya, gumbo and crab bisque highlight the menu. Patrick's doesn't have a website but check out the photos section of their Facebook page to see their menu. Patrick's Bistreaux is located in the heart of Berry Hill.

Cajuns are an ethnic group mainly living in the U.S. state of Louisiana, consisting of the descendants of Acadian exiles (French-speakers from Acadia in what are now the Canadian Maritimes). Today, the Cajuns make up a significant portion of south Louisiana's population, and have exerted an enormous impact on the state's culture.

    Yeah, but Cajun is not Big Easy. That undermines their assertions.
