Charlotte NC named after Queen Charlotte, wife of the English King George III (1738-1820), who was directly descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa, a black branch of the Portuguese royal family.Mozart dedicated his Opus 3 in her honor. And like the royal family of Charlottes namesake kept many secrets so does the city that does her honor and one of them is the Cajun Queen!
By far one of the best restaurants in Charlotte NC. The Cajun Queen offer great food great service and great ambiance. The restaurant itself presents Cajun dining in a restored house with 1st-floor & rooftop terraces plus a bar with live jazz.With live Jazz seven nights a week it is a pleasure for locals and tourists alike to visit this blend of old world southern elegance and ribald excess.The art on the walls attests to the sense of frivolity you get from the music which is just the right mix of contemporary jazz and bits of old school New Orleans flummery.
You can make reservations easily online through yelp and when you arrive the drinks do keep coming. A great place to bring friends while vacationing or after a long business trip to celebrate a win.The decorators although authentic in appeal don’t take themselves too seriously but the food definitely does!
The appetizers are treat with selections such as New Orleans BBQ shrimp which is sauteed with butter, garlic, beer and a variety of cajun or creole spices. served over rice, Cajun popcorn; fried crawfish tails served with sherry remoulade or crawfish scampi crawfish tails sauteed with garlic, white wine, scallions, parsley and our own bayou blend spices.
Entrees range from traditional Cajun/Creole dishes like Etouffee’ to Rib Eye steak or Blackened catfish!For Dessert HSM recommends the Bourbon Pecan Pie and the Bourbon Bread Pudding both a’la mode if you don’t have that much of a sweet tooth the key lime pie has a perfect balance of sweet and sour for any palate.
