My wife and I had dinner at Copeland’s of New Orleans in Columbia, MD, on the day after Christmas. The malls were packed but the restaurant was nearly empty, and we were greeted and seated immediately. We each had a non-alcoholic beverage while looking at the menu while munching on some baking powder biscuits brushed with butter. We both decided to try something that would reflect Copeland’s New Orleans heritage. My wife ordered Pasta Shrimp Copeland ($14.49) consisting of shrimp, garlic, mushrooms, fresh herbs, and angel hair pasta. The pasta and the shrimp were cooked perfectly, but the herbs were lack-luster and I’m pretty sure they were dried and not fresh. I choose the Shrimp Etouffee ($14.99) which is shrimp in a dark roux-based sauce seasoned with garlic, green onions, and spices, ladled over white rice. Again, the shrimp were cooked perfectly but the spices seemed a bit flat. The rice was indeed just plain white rice and it was a little dry (more sauce would probably help). The service was good; the atmosphere is a little dark, and the prices reasonable. If you’re going to give Copeland’s a try, go online and join the Copeland’s eClub – you will get an e-mail worth $10 off your next purchase of $25 or more.
