If you know anything about me is that I have been to New Orleans so often that I can consider it my second home. So to say that I am a connoisseur of the local cuisine would not be overestimating this statement. I have tried numerous restaurants in NYC that says they are Cajun restaurants and frankly they just did not cut the mustard. However, I can confidently say that Sugar Freak is a seven out of 10. The ambience is cute, the waitstaff and bartender very accommodating and the menu is not too extensive. Meaning that there are enough items on there to pretty much do most of the dishes right. My appetizer was the crawfish boudin balls with homemade potato chips and a dipping sauce which had a very nice kick. Can I say LOVED it! For a main entree, I decided to go with the buttermilk fried chicken, mac and cheese and collard greens all very good, but my favorite surprisingly were the greens. And finally for dessert we decided on the beignets with a banana fosters dipping sauce, not bad but not my favorite out of everything. But to be fair, I am not a fan of any dessert that has too much powdered sugar. Just be warned that it can be a little noisy and during busy times expect a bit of a wait but in my humble opinion, it is well worth the wait.
