Prejean’s, the well-known Cajun restaurant in Carencro, La, is reopening today at 5 PM after being acquired last year by the local Metcalf family.
The renovations include fresh coat of exterior paint to brighten up the facade, a cleaned up dining room, reduced gifts selection, cleaned & improved kitchen, new outdoor crawfish boiling room, new call ahead pickup window, and a more open and refreshed bar area with real cypress tree bar tops.
Speaking of cypress trees, there is a “Chef’s Table” made from a “1000-year-old” cypress. The table is by reservation only and could get you a meet and greet with either the chef and/or the owners of Prejean’s.
The menu has been refined to include only 100% Louisiana Seafood unless explicitly marked otherwise. You know, Salmon isn’t native to Louisiana, so that will be something to note if you see that on the menu. But for now, all seafood will be 100% Louisiana Seafood.
Check out the video walkthrough that we did last week to get a sneak peek inside. You can also see photos of the inside below.
