        yes, 3d and fairfax....i haven't had them but i think they may also have chocolate beignets, maybe others from time to time. they have gumbo and jambalaya....i usually stick to the fried catfish or oyster poboy, not bad, or the crawfish pie/strudel thing...i wouldn't be afraid to eat some beignets there!

            Thanks, Servorg. I guess I'll have to call them. Their website indicates they're strictly a vegan restaurant/caterer.
