Everything that Paul Prudhomme touches turns delicious, or so it seems. The man who launched a million smiles with his spicy gumbo and other Cajun fare is a NOLA original, a longtime innovator on the restaurant scene. Ever since he began commandeering Commander’s Palace (another Avenue Inn favorite) in the 1970’s, a ragin’ Cajun fever swept through New Orleans. To this day, the fever is still burning, and has gained momentum. A majority of what Prudhomme began cooking up in the 70’s became synonymous with New Orleans style cuisine, so it would be a great injustice to not credit Chef Paul Prudhomme for his indelible mark on the NOLA restaurant scene. Chef Paul invented the blackened technique for redfish early in his career and the rest is history.

Fortunately, guests to our New Orleans bed and breakfast do not have to go far to enjoy a bit of heaven, Cajun style. Its only a 10 minute streetcar ride to the french Quarter where the restaurant is located. Immediately upon being seated for dinner at K’Paul’s Kitchen you are served a basket of various assorted homemade bread. Some people have noted that this is worth the trip. But leaving it at that would be neglecting the main element: the entrée. Prepare your palate for all the food that made New Orleans famous, with a gourmet twist. If you are in the mood for celebrating, K-Paul’s is the place! Blackened yellowfin, eggplant pirogue seafood Altchafalaya, Louisiana drum fish, shrimp remoulade, jambalaya, and of course, gumbo are all available for the hungry guest. The menu does change, but getting served up a Cajun classic is always a possibility. In the mood for a celebration? Even better! The New Orleans version of a mariachi band- just three men and their brass-will serenade you while celebrating any occasion!

If you are or will be visiting New Orleans, staying in a bed and breakfast,  going to K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen would be a novel idea. It’s consistent, the staff is always friendly, and who better to serve you up a little bit of New Orleans than the legendary Chef Paul Prudhomme? Just bring yourself and a hearty appetite, and leave the rest to history.
