Big Easy Creole Kitchen

Edited: So sad.  Big Easy has closed.  

Ever since we moved back to Denver, we've wanted to participate in Denver Restaurant Week.  For one reason or another, it never worked out.   This year, I planned ahead and when the menus were announced, I pounced!

We made two reservations.  One at a restaurant that we could take our children to and another for date night.  I couldn't wait for this week to arrive!

Tuesday night, we went to Big Easy Creole Kitchen in Cherry Creek.  You can view the 5280 menu here.  My husband makes his own gumbo and jambalaya so we know good cajun, our expectations were high.

Everything we tried was great but the winning combination that we loved was:

Charbroiled Oysters
Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffee
New Orleans Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce

Say Hello to my Little Friend

The service was wonderful!  Jim was great with out kids and they have a very reasonable kids menu.  We loved the ambiance and felt like we were in the middle of the french quarter.  We can't wait to go back and try more from the menu.

Jim was also nice enough to tell us that they have free parking behind the restaurant, but we didn't have any trouble finding a meter and parking is free on the street after 7pm.

There are a few days left and reservation are easier to get during the week.
