Cajun/Creole in Mass, RI or CT

I'm looking for a decent cajun or creole restaurant to take my husband to on Father's Day. We're in Rhode Island, but I'm willing to travel down to CT or up to Boston if needed.

    1. Creative Cooking, at 1835 Boston Post Rd. in Westbrook, CT, is the only Cajun restaurant I'm acquainted with in your vicinity. On our only visit, a couple of years ago, I remember being satisfied with a charred fish dish and wanted to come back to try the gumbo, but my wife (who is not a fan of heavily spiced foods) said to cross it off our list. They have a special Jazz brunch for Father's day in the morning and the regular menu from 4pm on. See the website at

      1. Gumbo is a bad Chinese restaurant.

        Boulangerie St Antoinne‎ is a Haitian bakery

        From what I see on the website, Bluebird Cafe is mainly a standard breakfast joint. It looks like they have Cajun specials on Fridays.

        Chao Cajun looks like a food court franchise. Maybe it's decent, I don't know.
