Taste of Louisiana

by Bluewater Grill - March 10, 2019

Once again, Bluewater Grill Redondo Beach celebrates Mardi Gras and “Fat Tuesday” with a March tasting event and month-long celebration pairing the restaurant's famously fresh sustainable seafood with savory flavors and hot spices from the Bayou. 

The festivities begin with March 12 Taste of Louisiana event  that combines California-inspired versions of Redfish, Gumbo and Crabcakes with specialized drinks designed to bring out the flavor and turn up the heat. Also featured are Bluewater Grill Oysters Rockefeller.

As part of the festivities , Bluewater bartenders will pour the New Orleans Fizz, also known as the Ramos Gin Fizz, created in the late 1800s by New Orleans favorite son Henry C. Ramos. As legend has it, the cocktail became so popular that by the 1915 Mardi Gras celebrations, Ramos' 35 "shaker boys" had trouble keeping up with demand. Bartenders at each restaurant will demo the drink’s famous vigorous shaking ritual to give it its unique fizz. 

The cost of each March 12 pairing event, including the New Orleans Fizz pairing, is $40 per person, and reservations are required for seatings beginning at 6:30pm. Bluewater chefs and servers will be available to discuss the culinary and recipe possibilities of Cajun and Creole cuisines.

Throughout March, a sampling of Redfish, Gumbo and Oysters Rockefeller will be available off the menu for those that can’t make it on March 12, and guests can add their own New Orleans Fizz from the bar menu to complete their personal Louisiana celebration.
