Ragin Cajun - Houston

Ragin Cajun has crawdads y’all. I didn’t see anyone eating them though, pretty small I imagine. Soft shells left the menu last month. I was craving Cajun.

Our server was a waitress at a punk bar in the 70s lit only with black light. She was the only server in the bar dining room and was a flurry of amazing.

Luke Mandola was in the house. Richmond location - I’ve never made it to the Westchase location.

Edit: oh and upon leaving, I drove by Bayou City, apparently when Sir Oyster reported on his oysterfest there most recenrtly, he failed to note the facade redecoration! The whole center including the Hebert’s is glammed up in River Oaks tan and beige. :neutral_face: Not acceptible.

That’s how I remember it. Are you sure they’re not in the new location next to Hebert’s.

Welll I didn’t get a good look, but there is definitely a place next to Heberts just saying “Bayou City,” no “seafood and pasta” after it, but maybe they’re still working on it.

I really liked the delightful blue and white. Now it’s standard issue frontage.

I remember a favorite place now long gone on I-10 called Kingfish I used to frequent - first place I had soft shells. Their motif inside made it seem diners were eating under water. Clever I thought, but I’m pretty easily impressed.

We went there in my courting days. They had all you can eat lobster that came with mahi and shrimp. I maxed out at five.
