Mat & Naddie's Creole Restaurant
Location & Contact:
If you're not from here, you probably haven't heard of us. If you are, you already know that Mat & Naddie's offers its own brand of fine dining combined with a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere that has attracted a local following since opening nine years ago.
Fine, yet accessible, local cuisine is the watchword here. Although we do get the occasional tourist who ventures off the beaten path, Mat & Naddie's caters to its neighbors' tastes.
Almost a decade ago, longtime Mat & Naddie's cook, Steve Schwarz, purchased the restaurant from founders Paula and Michael Schramel and their children Nat & Maddie (get it?). Schwarz creates the friendly and funky look of a roadside caf that does not betray how very ambitious the Creole fine dining menu is. When weather is pleasant, diners opt for patio seating, which offers silhouettes of horseback riders on the levee behind which freighters ply their way up and down the Mississippi.
Maybe it's the contrast with the shack-like exterior, but every time I dine here I'm very pleasantly surprised by the skills and ambitions of the kitchen. The menu is original and familiar at the same time, with enough seldom-seen dishes (venison, for example) to set dinners here apart from the routine. Lunch is a very inexpensive buffet. The nightly wine dinner--three courses with three wines for just over $50--is a particularly good way to sample the place on a first visit.
