French Quarter Bistro Royersford - Review

starbuck212 | Nov 8, 2007 04:40 AM

Last night my hubby & I tried the French Quarter Bistro in Royersford, which, true to the name, specializes in cajun/ creole/ new Olreans food.

Everything we ate was GREAT! We started w/ the Cajun Popcorn (deep fried crawfish) w/ a spicy creole mustardy sauce -- fantastic (and I normally stay away from fried food, but this was so yummy!). I had the Etouffe, which was the Wednesday night special -- very very good, but I liked what my husband had even better. He had chicken Nola, which was boneless chicken, shrimp, and crawfish, in a creamy spicy (yet sweet) sauce, served over rice. Soooooooooo Goooooood! So many calories, but so good! Oh, and the bread they served -- fantastic. Sort of like a cornmeal bread but a little lighter than that -- and the top was crusted with a little bit of spice. And I had a Hurricane from the bar, even though it wasn't on the menu. And the prices were EXTREMELY reasonable... so reasonable that my hubby & I thought they should raise some of the prices. Everything I listed came to $54 with tip (app, 2 entrees, and drink from the bar).

The location is a little strange -- there's like nothing else going on on the street where this place is -- this appeared to be the only business that was open (at least at night). The decor was basic. They did have New Orleans music playing, though, which was a nice touch. It was really dead in there on a Wed night -- there was only one other couple eating dinner, besides us. I hope they can stay in business. Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food! It's a hole-in-the-wall, off-the-beaten-path, gem!
