Evangeline’s menu features fresh, fun versions of bistro favorites like croque madame and French onion soup. Standards such as assiette de fromages and tour de fruits de mer are given new life in their interpretations by Chef Rios and team.
The plats du jour – daily specials – range from gumbo ya-ya to shrimp etouffee. Most exciting, perhaps, are the ‘instant classics’ of their own making, like beef tartare and whole sole almandine. The menu layout is simple and clear, yet attractive and tempting. The flavors are big, bold, beautiful, and yet sublime – but ”subtle” is not an adjective used to describe the food at Evangeline.
