One of the historically frustrating things about the Seattle dining scene is the lack of Cajun and Creole food restaurants, perhaps second only to the lack of Mexican joints. The opening of Toulouse Petit delightfully addresses that. The restaurant's tall windows and intimate interior are modeled after the famous restaurants in New Orleans, but enough about the exquisite decorating.
Toulouse Petit is truly about the rich, amazing food.
Breakfast at Toulouse Petit is modeled after the traditional New Orleans-style brunch, with classic dishes like Eggs Sardou and Eggs Hussarde as well as other Eggs Benedict preparations and classic French-style omelets prominently featured. The lunch menu focuses on classic New Orleans fare, such as Fried Oyster, Fried Gulf Shrimp and Blackened Redfish Po' Boys, Fried Chicken Gumbo and Spicy Jambalaya. Dinnertime brings some hearty N'awlins fare inckluding Oysters Rockerfeller and Crawfish Etoufee. Mimosas, Brandy Milk Punch, Creole Bloody Mary, Ramos Gin Fizz and other New Orleans-derived cocktails are offered. The best cocktail, hands down, is the Hurricane.
