I can't believe I've lived in Montreal all my life and had never been to La Louisiane. It's such a fun restaurant! The place was bustling, there was fabulous jazz music playing overhead, and the food was rich and spicy, and warmed me to the core. I loved it!
I loved that they served fresh cornbread biscuits instead of traditional bread, and that the open kitchen was continually lit up with huge blasts of flames from the stove top. I can't wait to go back and eat more of those firecracker shrimp! La Louisiane is the perfect choice for a cold Montreal winter night.
