There's Cajun food, and then there's Isaac Toups Cajun food. That might sound hyperbolic, but anyone whose family has lived in Louisiana for 300 years had better know his boudin from his andouille and his gumbo from his etoufée. Toups South is also the restaurant at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, and if SoFab is on board, then there's no reason you shouldn't be too.
A three-time James Beard Award winner, Isaac Toups does not mess around. At Toups South, you'll get to see why, regardless of your culinary mood. Are you dying for a Southern biscuit? Here, they come with crab fat butter. Is it gross and rainy out? Order the blood sausage cassoulet and warm yourself right up. Brought a vegan along? Even this uber-carnivorous place can accommodate them with its always-changing local vegetable plate. Want to get to know Isaac? Check out this hilarious video of him and his friends getting rowdy from the folks at Vice Munchies.
One more thing you should know about Toups South is that it's a perfect place to bring a big group. Get all your friends together for what is sure to be one hell of a celebration at this exceptional eatery.
