I first discovered Thanksgiving when looking for a place to have cajun food in Paris. The Husband being a true southerner, he would have not survived in Paris more than a couple months without a real gumbo or pecan pie (or mexican food but that’s another story)! We had tried a place called “blue bayou” but found it unauthentic and expensive. That’s when we gave Thanksgiving a shot! And oh surprise! It was delicious!
They only serve brunch now, on saturday and sunday only. They have cajun and non-cajun options. The cajun ones include gumbo, boudin (my favorite) with dirty rice and veggies, cajun egg benedicts with crawfish (still have to try that one), jambalaya…. They also offer lox and bagel, traditionnal egg benedicts and pancakes. The brunch menu includes a dessert which you can take home if you are too full: cheesecake, pecan pie, bread pudding to mention only a few. Their pumpking pie (which they only serve in the fall) is pretty great too.
The other thing I love about this place is their american grocery store. They have a pretty good selection even though I have to say most of it is processed food (cookie mix, artificial PB, candy bars…) and the prices aren’t cheap. But they have a few items that I can’t find anywhere else: canned pumpkin, chipoltle chili in adobo sauce, low fat refried beans, light philadelphia cheese, gumbo file spice…. And diet root beer, which reminds me of road trips with Travis!
So overall I highly recommend this place.
I’ll take photos of the restaurant food next time we go there for brunch!
