Tapalaya is the worlds first tapas (small-plates) restaurant serving Cajun/Creole cuisine. Everything on our menu is made from scratch, with love. The plates of food are small (appetizer or side items size) and perfect for sharing and pairing. Menu items highlight New Orleans favorites: Jambalaya, Collard Greens, N"awlins BBQ Shrimp, Corn Bread and Po'Boys (just to name a few). Join us for Live Music every Thursday and Happy Hour Every day (4:30-6:00pm).

"We shared the fried green tomatoes (perfectly crispy and fresh with cornmeal), pork belly chunks on a stick (tender, really tasty) and the red beans and rice (pretty spicy, I prefer a bit milder). They had a three piece jazz band playing, adding to the delightful experience. I didn't think I liked jazz. Changed my mind. The service was pleasant and efficient. It's a small place, so ocassionally you're sitting pretty close to others, but even still, it is worth it. Probably not the best place for small children, set up for more of an adult scene/experience. This was our first visit and we plan to go again as soon as we can."

"The ringside (East and West) used to be "the" place to go for a steak.... But honestly, it needs some serious updating in decor and menu. I had the nightly special... a couple of filet mignon medallions (4 oz), "crispy potatoes" (new potatoes, fried) and garlic sauteed spinach (tasted very musty, not fresh).. it was sadly very boring... my husband had the 6 oz filet (only $5 more than the special and clearly a better choice). To be fair, the filets were beautiful, mine was a perfect medium rare, my husband's 6 oz was more rare than medium rare, but still tasty. The greeting staff are pleasant and helpful. Our waiter was a bit over the top with way too many "my friend's" in his over solicious service. Just needs a serious all over update!"
