If a trip to New Orleans is not in your future, head to the casual eatery in Midtown Atlanta serving Louisiana-style seafood and stiff cocktails at the former TopFlr location. It's not all fried po'boys here like most other Cajun spots – there are global influences on the menu like the falafel banh-mi or the sweet and spicy cold noodles, along with boiled crawfish, crab, shrimp and more.

Gumbo is one of those rare dishes where the more stuff you add, the merrier: shrimp and crab and oysters, chicken and duck and andouille sausage, lots of spice or a little, load up the rice or don’t. The charm is in the mix, but so is the challenge. Gaining a sense of proportion becomes key.more...
Gumbo is one of those rare dishes where the more stuff you add, the merrier: shrimp and crab and oysters, chicken and duck and andouille sausage, lots of spice or a little, load up the rice or don’t. The charm is in the mix, but so is the challenge. Gaining a sense of proportion becomes key. Atlanta is blessed with a range of gumbo offerings from independently owned restaurants, but the chain PAPPADEAUX gets it just right in its seafood gumbo. The broth is just thick enough, the roux just the right shade of brown, the debris of crab just tattered enough, the spice just hot enough. (Someone knows how to tap that cayenne dispenser!) less...

Independent Cajun restaurants never seem to take hold for any length of time in Atlanta. Our experience of Louisiana's spicy food may change dramatically with Emeril's opening in Buckhead, but for the time being, the most reliable Cajun cooking is at PAPPADEAUX SEAFOOD KITCHEN. Yes, it's part of a chain, the restaurant is gigantic and there are wall-to-wall crowds. But the crawfish etouffee and blackened fish dishes (our favorite hold-over from the '80s) are better than most around town. The decor is a bit gimmicky, but your inner Cajun youngin' will delight in it. "2830 Windy Hill Road, Marietta, 770-984-8899 and other locations. www.pappadeaux.com" less...

1877 Piedmont Ave. 404-875-6602 This tiny cafe on Piedmont near Cheshire Bridge is serving the city's best gumbo these days. Although purists object to the combination of seafood with meats in one of the gumbos, we love the stuff, served in a big au lait cup. It's rich with file, smoky and slightly stinging. There's also good crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, po' boys and bread pudding. Owner Karen Hudson loves your feedback and will wring her hands by your table while you critique every mouthful. less...

The menu at this pub-ish Midtown spot covers the Cajun spectrum from po' boys to jambalaya to blackened chicken gumbo to bread pudding. But the curry crawfish egg rolls are something you may not encounter down on the Bayou.

Gumbo a Go Go (Permanently Closed)
We've been in love with Mark Kennedy's funky concept since it first opened with a sign full of prepositions — "Dine in, Carry out, Groove on" — and a kitchen full of delicious Cajun specialties. The food, especially the gumbo, once again surpasses anyone else's. In short, it's groovin' on.more...
