So after reading the rave reviews in all the local newspapers we headed to St. Pete this weekend to give the new Ricky P's Orleans Bistro a try. We ordered a muffalletta, Boudin Balls, Oysters, Crab Cakes and Bread Pudding. The muffalletta was served on Publix French Bread, the meat was standard deli style cold cuts, nothing like a "real" muffalletta. Boudin Balls were ok. Crab Cake were ok. The Bread Pudding was served with "home made rum sauce", in my opinion tasted like Scope, yes, like the mouthwash Scope. The server was really slow, and then once we got our check they had charged us a $1.00 extra for the Bread Pudding and a $1.00 extra for the oysters. I pointed out the mistake to the server, so she then took our check to the back, brought it back out to us and said "they fixed it". They only credited us $1.00, not the full $2.00 that they overcharged us for.
In my opinion, save your money and calories!
