Cajun food at its best.
We celebrated an early Father’s Day with my husband and my son’s family last Thursday evening.
The place? Henry’s Louisiana Grill in Acworth, Georgia, with local and national acclaim. A little bit of Louisiana tucked into the outskirts of Atlanta. http://www.chefhenrys.com/
The town of Acworth is small – very small. A railroad track runs the length of Main Street, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 30-35 trains passing daily. But, the trains don’t bother Henry’s clients. The restaurant has helped put the town back on the map. The restaurant is cozy and rustic and is housed in a 1909 building on Main Street. Even before you reach the front door, street music, straight from New Orleans, blasts in the air…the feeling of Mardi Gras.
The atmosphere is homey, where you are invited into their home…you are part of the family. Henry visits each table and casts beads to every guest. What fun. He isn’t rushed as he takes a few minutes to talk to each guest and gets their names.
I’d love to add some photos, but don’t have permission to use them. Click on the link below to catch the essence of the town and Henry’s Louisiana Grill.
The food at Henry’s is an experience, not simply dining out. I had Shrimp and Grits. Absolutely the best I’ve ever had. If you get a chance, drop in and join their family for a meal. Oh, they’re closed on Sunday. They’re open for lunch also. Come prepared to wait in the evening, but it’s worth the wait. Who knows, you may get lucky and walk right in. If it wasn’t great food, there’d be no wait. 🙂
I raise my glass to Pepper Phillips, an author at Authors of Main Street, but who we lost to illness. Pepper remains in our hearts. From Louisiana, she graciously shared many of her favorite recipes with us. She loved cooking and it showed.
Do you have a new, favorite eating place?
I wish you love, butterflies and music.
