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
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.
The Blue Hound in Ivoryton CT has great Cajun dishes, and as a plus it's BYOB.(They also sell wine and beer) Had a great special there recently rib eye steak with a dynamite crawfish sauce.
