"Laissez les bons temps rouler," is the motto at The Palace Grill, a phrase that translates to: Let the good times roll. The menu of the eatery, which opened in 1985, reads like a roster of Southern and Creole favorites, such as the gumbo, crawfish etouffee, , jambalaya, red beans and rice, crawfish crabcakes, and of course the bread pudding with whiskey cream sauce.
