The Big Easy starts offering New Orleans menu Saturday

The Big Easy, a casual restaurant at 1335 Main St. with a New Orleans-style menu, aims to open at lunchtime May 28.

Fried fish and shrimp po-boys, chicken and sausage or seafood gumbo, boudin balls, “debris” fries topped with a roast beef gravy, and more will be on the menu, said Chef Taralyn Stephens. The restaurant plans to open for lunch at 11 a.m.

Stephens is from Donaldsonville, about an hour west of New Orleans. She’s a graduate of Louisiana Culinary Institute in Baton Rouge, she said, where her experience included Bistro Byronz, Bonnano’s Fine Catering, and her own catering company. The restaurant's owner is attorney Sam Davis.

The 32-seat restaurant will have customers order at the counter, with table service. Plans are to open seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. except for Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. No alcohol, at first, Stephens said. Phone: 884-3279.

Here's the menu. NOTE: The phone number it lists is wrong.
