Before its recent expansion into a neighboring storefront, Angeline’s was famous for a persistent line out the door. It seems its popularity has only doubled along with its size. Thankfully, the authentic Cajun and Creole fare—and atmosphere—is worth the wait. Go big on appetizers with decadent fried cheese grits topped with zippy crawfish étouffée, or a bowl of hush puppies and sweet honey butter dip. Skip the uninspired salads (iceberg with bacon and buttermilk dressing), and go right into entrées such as delicate, lightly fried catfish with spicy potato salad; rich, buttery voodoo shrimp over rice with farm-fresh Blue Lake green beans; or the smoky, addictive jambalaya with roasted chicken, tasso ham, and andouille sausage. Try to save room for the most authentic beignets this side of the Mississippi or a slice of pecan pie. And don’t miss the crawfish boils each spring. Lunch Tues.–Sun., dinner daily.
