late night saturday rec near 37th & 9th/10th? (bonus for cajun...)

We're seeing the Wooster Group's Vieux Carre (HIGHLY recommended, seen it twice already in other citites).

Anybody have a good recommendation in that area? The show will get out around 10:30, so we're looking to eat at 11PM.

Nothing too pricey this time.
Since the play takes place in New Orleans, cajun would be ideal but not required.

If all else fails, we will default to Pepegiallo's, but I'm hoping to do better....

Thank!

  1. Delta Grill and Bourbon Street are two New Orleans style restaurants in the west 40s. I haven't been to either one but there's lots of feedback on Yelp.

      1. re: pauliface

        I'm not so sure about that. Delta Grill is OK at best. I don't remember having any food at Bourbon Street.

          i've been to Delta several times and some of the dishes are quite good. i like their fried chicken stuffed with andouille sausage and their pulled pork po'boy, especially.

          1. re: coasts

            I'll admit to not having had those particular items.

              anyone try therir jambalaya or etouffee? those would be the first things I'd go for...

              1. re: pauliface

                I've had their jambalaya and it was just bad. If they can't manage even that, I don't think their etoufee would be any better.

                  1. re: JungMann

                    Yeah, I agree. I'm not sure I'd go as far as to say it was bad, but it's not consistently good, at any rate. I miss Louisiana Community Bar & Grill, which used to be on Broadway between Houston and Bleecker. Sadly, it's long gone.

                    1. re: Pan

                      I've had a few things from Delta Grill, but in all honesty they were so poorly botched I haven't been back to the restaurant in years. Perhaps someone with more recent experience can contradict me.

      2. Hey so we went to Delta Grill. It was just fine. Not a destination foodie restaurant, but perfectly serviceable and it fit the bill so thanks for the tip.

        I tried the jambalaya even though some on here advised against it. Not the best ever, but cerainly not bad. I would get it again if I had the craving. I've certainly had better, but I"ve also had a lot worse.

        Beforehand we split some fried green tomatoes (really nice) popcorn crawfish (good) and crabcakes (just okay).
