The weather might be getting colder but things are still heating up in Wicker Park thanks to the opening of Fifolet Cajun & Cocktails, a spicy New Orleans-style restaurant and bar! Named for the mystical blue lights that float above the bayous in Louisiana, Fifolet offers a casual dining experience, bar scene and taste of Southern culture – all under one roof.
Executive Chef Kevin Crouse (formerly of Nouveau Tavern, the Mid-America Club and Fairways) has created a menu that combines classic Cajun and Creole flavors. Crouse isn’t the only cook in the kitchen, however: Corey Gillom has joined Fifolet as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine. Gillom previously held culinary positions with Longman & Eagle, Rodan and American Cut Steakhouse in New York.
Highlights from the Fifolet’s opening menu include:
Honey-Custard Cornbread with Cayenne Streusel
Venison Grillades & Grits
Fried Alligator Etouffee
Four Types of Po’Boys
Bananas Foster Pie
