Those visitors to New Orleans who think the term Yankee refers to a self-satisfied team of “sluggers” in New York will probably be equally vexed by the term “blackened” when referring to food in this city. After Chef Paul Prudhomme addresses you and your bachelor party crew as “Yankees” you should order some of his world renowned blackened fish. Don’t worry about what it is, just trust us... you’ll order everything you eat blackened from then on, even your cereal. You may just leave New Orleans with a couple bottles of K-Paul’s sauces, much to your girlfriend’s chagrin.

Meanwhile you and your buddies will savor “the blackened drum”-- an amazing fish dish-- that helped catapult Chef Paul to the esteemed level of Iron Chef on the eponymously named TV show. Drink in hand, drum on plate, you will leave K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen satisfied and thrilled on your way to consume copious amounts of booze after the meal. You are, after all, at a bachelor party, not a religious ceremony.

And make no mistake, K-Paul’s is a great place for a bachelor party. First, they take reservations, which is a bit unusual for eateries in The Big Easy. Second, they know how to serve a bigger group. Lastly, it’s not stuffy nor is it priced to keep out the riff-raff (in other words, you and your gang).

Venue Tip: 

There’s a strong potential to stuff yourself to the breaking point before the actual meal on K-Paul’s homemade breads so savory that the Pillsbury Dough Boy will be cowering in the corner while you munch. Might want to steal a barf bag from the plane for 2 am that morning.

The Good: 
Everyone in New Orleans sounds like Adam Sandler’s character in The Waterboy. No, seriously, they don’t. They actually sound like Dustin Hoffman in Runaway Jury.
The Bad: 
Tourist central, but what place isn’t down there? Where do you think you are, Kansas City?
