masq crabcakes

The Amazing Crabcakes Above

The cuisine is New American with a New Orleans flair and the theme is Mardi Gras.

It opened a few months ago and it is really unique.  It has charming small rooms filled

with antique furnishings,big comfortable easy chairs and plush sofas.  The dining area

has large, expansive tables.  The bar specializes in New Orleans drinks like a Mint Julip, and a

terrific Sazirac and Absinthe.  They also have a large wine list. On the menu are such favorites

as Jambalaya, Crab Cakes, Macaroni and Cheese, Bananas Foster and many more. Look for

promotions such as the current Mardi Gras Menu, featuring Mardi Gras Food Specials!

Etoufee, Muffaletta (A traditional style muffuletta sandwich consists of a sesame muffuletta

loaf split horizontally and covered with layers of marinated olive salad, mortadella, salami,

mozzarella, ham, and provolone. The sandwich is sometimes heated to soften the

provolone), Louisiana Crabcakes, Jambalaya and the chef’s rendition of Bananas Foster, here

tucked inside of fried dumplings and flamed in the kitchen.

There are also outstanding specials like a perfect wild salmon, cooked in Asian spices and

served on fresh salad greens with sweet tomatoes.

The draught beer selection is excellent, offering Stella and Blue Moon, with a slice of fresh

orange.

Masq is a fine addition to the neighborhood and will soon be offering takeout

through Seamless. Highly Recommended.
