Discover what Louisiana cuisine is all about
The Vacherie is located in the center of the French Quarter (very close to Bourbon Street) and specializes in Cajun food. It is an elegant place, one of those that you feel important just visiting. But unlike other high-end restaurants, Vacherie's staff and chef are both young and make you feel right at home. The decor is simple, but the pictures on the wall and flowers on the table give the place a cheerful touch.
I didn't know what to order so I ended up getting a tasting menu. It came with Andouille sausage with cheese and nuts, alligator with spicy tartar sauce, shrimp ceviche, seafood gumbo, crab stew, Brussels sprouts in a bacon vinaigrette, and Louisiana sweet potato.
