Oooh, la la. Tasty Cajun food!

Greg May, general manager of Le Bistro and soon-to-be GM of the Cajun restaurant coming to downtown Stockton, writes:

Here are some of the menu items we will be doing:

Barbecue (Louisiana Style) Shrimp with Andouille sausage and Parmesan grits
Rock Shrimp Capellini with a tomato and arugula butter sauce
Gumbo-Different types, will change often
Fresh fish using Trout, Salmon, Mahi Mahi, Cod, etc.
Southern Fried Chicken
Crab Cakes
Fried Green Tomatoes
Oysters-Not always but regularly
Crab and Shrimp Cobb Salad
Po’Boy Sandwiches
Bananas Fosters Crepes
Bread Pudding
Creme Caramel
Chocolate Brownie Souffle

These are just some of the items we will have. It is endless. …If all goes well we will be opening 4/16.

Owner Bruce Davies said he’s done six pro formas of the venture over the last two years — meaning he’s examined the restaurant from every possible angle. He strikes me as right about boldy offering Cajun food, right about the importance of a local owner, right about opening the balcony and patio. If I were a betteing man, I’d wager the third time will be a charm for this city redevelopment experiment.
