If anyone is looking for authentic creole or cajun food in Pittsburgh, unfortunately you might have to look for a while longer. James Street Tavern and A Taste of New Orleans have apparently both closed. I just called http://www.lemardigras.com in Shadyside and they don’t serve Abita Beers at all?! I don’t know about y’all, but there is a definite need for some real cajun food in Pittsburgh.
The only mention i could even find online was an article from the tribune review that has a glossary of cajun/creole dishes but it doesn’t make any mention of where you can actually have shrimp creole or crawfish ettoufe in Pittsburgh.
Crawfish season is coming up and there isn’t a restaurant that serves boiled crawfish that we can find anywhere. If anyone has a recommendation or knows something that I am missing, please let me know.
