Acadiana is a contemporary interpretation of a Louisiana ‘fish house,’ in keeping with Chef/Owner Jeff Tunks' passion for coastal delicacies, and capturing the true spirit of the bayou with its blend of Old World traditions and New World resources. It is the only fine dining restaurant in the nation's capital serving the cuisine of this flavorful region, inspired by the years that Tunks spent living and working in New Orleans. Together with executive chef Brant Tesky, he creates dishes that reflect the bounty of Louisiana in the finest of seafood and premium meats. Whether you opt for Acadiana’s Charbroiled Oysters with Garlic Butter, Parmesan Romano Cheese, and warm French Bread, or the New Orleans Style Barbeque Shrimp with Garlic Butter, Black Pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, and Warm Bread [one of USA Today’s Top 25 Dishes of 2005] – just shut your eyes and imagine yourself in The Big Easy.
