Specialty burgers include a Cajun King Burger with Andouille sausage, Cheddar Cheese and Creole mustard aioli and a Crawfish Mac & Cheese Burger.

Signature made-to-order beignets are now available with new dipping sauces, including raspberry, caramel and chicory-coffee ganache.

Of course, no visit to “The Big Easy” would be complete without a Louisiana-style King Cake, perfect for celebrating Mardi Gras anytime.

Laissez les bons temps rouler when the new menu debuts November 19 at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory!

Comments

  • Can the rice bowl be done vegan style? Is a vegan burger a “meat” choice for the power salad?

  • I can’t wait to experience the new menu. POFQ is our favorite resort. I’m planning a trip for 2018 but may have to make a short trip in 2017 because I can’t wait to see all the updates!

  • As someone who was born and raised in New Orleans I’m very excited to see the menu change!! The little bundt cakes and beignets are adorable and the menu has a vision and theme that I think was greatly lacking before. The previous items were a poor excuse for Louisiana cooking!
    However, where the sides were listed I’m pretty sure you mean to say”maque choux” not “mache”choux (that isn’t a thing) 🙂

  • We are arriving at POFQ on the 27th of this month – so happy they have re-opened the restaurant – will it still be quick service?

  • Any hope for monte christos from Cafe Orleans/Blue Bayou?

  • We’ll be staying at Port Orleans French Quarter in January! Can’t wait to visit Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory!
