Neighborhood Eats: RT’s Restaurant

The feel is neighborhood roadhouse, the food by way of New Orleans and Cajun country. That means oysters several ways (we like the Bienville, baked with cream sauce); Acadian shrimp barbecued with butter and pepper; fried catfish smothered with shrimp étoufée; a spicy, creamy corn maque choux; and bananas-Foster cake with warm caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
