Patio's Almost Done: Time to Revisit Ri'Chard's Louisiana Café

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 6:16 AM

Thanks to the disgruntled reader who wrote in to correct our outdated listing of Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe. Yes, we were carrying some old material in our dining guide and we are happy to right the error. If you haven't been out to Ri'Chard's since it opened in 2005, you might be surprised by the changes, including the addition of étouffée and beignets to the roster of New Orleans cuisine.

In addition to a bayou-soaked menu of alligator bites, crab bisque, mahi-mahi, blackened redfish, Gulf shrimp, boudin and bread pudding--which also boasts Community Coffee, Gambino's French bread and beer--Ri'Chard's hosts nightly songwriters' nights.

This spring, owner Richard Trest is finishing up a patio, which he describes in his weekly email update: "Best dumb question of the week: Hey, you guys building a patio? Answer: No we're building a brick wall. We're going to stand it up when we're done."

Located at 4420 Whites Creek Pike (Phone: 299-9590), Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday 5:30 to 9 p.m. and Sunday jazz-and-blues brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Entertainment is always free, and the music schedule is posted after the jump.
