Looking for a taste of the bayou?
A new restaurant called Creole Creed is now serving customers at 2216 Broadway (at West Grand Avenue) in the Uptown district.
The family-owned business, a pop-up at Plum Cocktail Bar, includes grandmother Theresa Sonnier (culinary consultant), meme Joyce Sonnier (culinary consultant), daughter Queen Shabazz (creative director) and mother Tekia Anderson (executive chef).
According to its website, the "food reflects the history of struggle and survival we have endured as black people, with a past of segregation under an Afro-French-Indigenous identity. "
You'll find an assortment of dishes, including fried chicken, Creole pasta, seafood, sausage and chicken gumbo, peanut sauce chicken, dirty rice and many more. (See the full menu here.)
Creole Creed has already attracted fans thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.
Prince De' W., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on July 1, wrote, "Did not notice how good the food was going to be until I took my first bite. I was blown away with actual great tasting Creole food from great Creole."
Yelper Diem L. added, “Checked out the popup at Plum Bar on their soft open on Tuesday. Overall, the food was good. Had the Meme Rice, Seafood Medley and the Mac 'n Cheese. The Meme Rice was good; similar to jambalaya but not with red sauce."
Creole Creed is open from 5 p.m.–10 p.m. on Tuesday-Thursday, 5 p.m.–12 a.m. on Friday, 6 p.m.–12 a.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m.–5 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
