Roux – New Orleans Creole Nouvelle in Tampa
I have been wanting to find a true Cajun/Creole restaurant in Tampa and had just accepted that one didn’t exist until I found out about Roux. Roux is owned by the geniuses that also own Datz which is one of my all-time favorites. I knew it would be delicious but I am happy to report that Roux exceeded some pretty high expectations.
The menu is a perfect balance of traditional selections like Po Boys and red beans & rice but also offers a variety of variations on traditional Creole items like shrimp n grits, bayou bolognese that has wild boar, alligator and andouille sausage to name a few.
The place is beautiful inside with a bustling bar filled with pretty people enjoying even prettier drinks.
They even have Absinthe with the amazing presentation with the sugar cubes….just watch the video!
My guest was Stand Up Comic and Radio Host Johnny B who is also a pretty damn good cook so he was the perfect guest for this episode!
