New Orleans Kitchen Open For Business

The new restaurant offers po' boy sandwiches and gumbo, along with other favorites from the Big Easy.

The opened quietly this week, bringing some authentic favorites from the Big Easy to Severn.

The restaurant near the corner of Telegraph and Reece roads features a menu with several different kinds of po’ boys, gumbo, red beans and rice and muffulettas. There are also daily specials including fried chicken and jambalaya, plus desserts.

I stopped by Wednesday afternoon and ordered a fried chicken po’ boy and some bread pudding. With jazz music in the background, I dug into the sandwich while sitting at the restaurant's window counter. It’s not my place to write a full review of the food, except that … well, I ate everything. And I’ll be back.

said she and her partners are still completing work on the interior of the restaurant and perfecting the customer service. But even with minimal advertising, the restaurant has been busy as area residents have been eagerly awaiting for it to open over the last month.

I'm so glad to see this nice-looking place move into my neighborhood's "well-worn" strip. It's great to see them freshen up a spot that's been vacant for a while in an established neighborhood site rather than in the mega-sprawl of Arundel Mills. I am so excited to try them and add them to my rotation of nearby take-out spots, which already includes Squisito and Kuki. Hope to stop in this week; what are their hours? Also, a side-note... any info on the time frame for the new Royal Farms across the street?

We stopped in last night for some of the po'boys. Tried the roast beef, ham, and shrimp po'boys and everyone shared a bit of each. The red beans and rice were also a great hit with the kids. Its nice to see a local place around here instead of all the chains. We'll definitely be coming back to try more on the menu.

I agree, it's nice to see a local eatery rather than a huge chain.

The hours are 11am to 7pm Tuesday thru Friday and 11am to 6PM on Saturday.

I had a chance to stop by and the food is really good but I was disappointed in the facility. I understand that they just opened up last week but there were no tables and only minimal seating at two counters by the window. The counters were newly cut 2/4s that still had the lumber smell (sojething I love) but was not someplace I wanted to spend a nice Saturday night with my wife at. I truly hope they make it but I wonder why they would open up before they were really ready. First impressions are important. I hope someone lets me know when they have tables and chairs so I can go back.

Ronald, we're glad you enjoyed the food and we appreciate your feed back. We are a family owned and operated business. As a co-owner and the construction manager we will have tables and chairs by this Friday. Our concept is geared more towards carry-out but we have had quite a few inquiries for seating. We hope to see you and your wife in the near future. Thank You

I tried their catfish Po-Boy sandwich ($12.99) along with a small red beans and rice ($5.99), to go, for lunch one afternoon. The sandwich and rice was very good however I thought the price was high. For a $20 lunch I would expect to be at a restaurant complete with waiters, hostest etc. I didn't even order a drink and my bill was over $20! Perhaps I'm being cheap, however I don' think so. I think they are going to have a tough time establishing a repeat lunch crowd unless they lower their prices a bit. Besides the high price, the inside looked nice and I'm glad we have another dining option in the Severn area.

Severn-Man - I agree, I think the food is excellent, and know that good food doesn't come cheap. But I just am not accustomed to spending that much for lunch on a regular basis. Perhaps if they sold half-sized po' boys at $6 or $7, they might see more people come back over and over.

What did you think?

I really want to try this place out but for a family to go, it sounds like it could break the bank! My parents went in saw the prices and walked out. They claim that he Muffuletta sandwich was $40. I cant believe that! I can go to Trinacria's in Baltimore and get something comparable for undress $10. I would love to see a menu with prices online.

The food was delicious. The menu is centered around the po' boys, as you'd expect. My wife and I stopped in and ordered 2 po' boys, a side, and a drink. The bill came to around $25! I'd gladly pay $6 to $8 each for the po' boys (you do get a lot of meat), but the sides cost way too much for too little food. For a combo, we paid an extra $4 which gave us a very small container of rice and a medium drink. The container for sides is small to begin with, but they are even raised on the bottom making it seem like you're getting more than you are. I was disappointed when trying to dig in for more rice and my spoon hit the bottom, which shouldn't have been the bottom. Overall rating: Go for the Po' Boys, but avoid the overinflated expense of everything esle.
John August 31, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Agreed. Good food - great actually. Far too expensive for lunch to make it a regular thing.

After my comment this past summer, I told my wife they would be out of business in a year. I was wrong... it only took six months! Sometime around Christmas a sign went up in their window that said "Closed for the season..... Reason.... Freezin" I'm not sure if they are planning on opening back up in the spring, however if they do they better re-work their menu and prices. They also might want to hire some local help and plan on being open 7-days a week instead of five. Have you ever heard of a successful restaurant open only 5-days? I imagine that was one of the reason their prices were so high.
