Served with house-fried potato chips


Kettle Entrees

Tiny's Gumbo

This heavily seasoned stew is anything but tiny. Our signature dish defines the diverse roots of American cuisine. Gumbo starts with a velvety peanut-butter-colored, full-fat roux base, flavored with the holy trinity, Cajun spices, fresh herbs, and chicken stock. Served with nutty popcorn rice, a Louisiana-bred long-grain variety, and topped with a dusting of filé powder and gremolata. Choose your proteins and spice level

Gumbo Z’Herbes, a.k.a. Green Gumbo

Vegetarian gumbo is traditionally served during the Lenten season. It starts with a vegetarian roux base; hearty leafy vegetables (swiss chard, collard greens, black kale, and parsley); and the holy trinity, and is finished with Cajun spices, fresh herbs, and reduced white wine. Served with rich and nutty popcorn rice and topped with a dusting of filé powder and gremolata. Choose your spice level


Crawfish & Crispy Okra Étouffée

In French, étouffée literally means smothered. So, we create a quick gravy made with crawfish tail meat sautéed in butter with our house crab-boil spice blend and the holy trinity, thickened with a medium-dark roux. This flavorful gravy is smothered over popcorn rice and garnished with crispy fried okra


Spicy Shrimp Creole

Creole dishes normally incorporate tomatoes, unlike their Cajun counterparts. One of the best-known is Spicy Shrimp Creole, a quick stew made with fresh tomatoes, shrimp, and the holy trinity. Finished with a drizzle of chili oil, toasted garlic chips, and served over a bed of aromatic popcorn rice


Andouille & Shrimp Jambalaya

A one-pot wonder born from Spanish colonists adapting their beloved paella with local ingredients in Louisiana during the 1700s. Our jambalaya starts with a dark brown roux, tomato paste, rendered smoked Tasso, and Andouille sausage, all deglazed with porter beer to make a rich gravy. Shrimp and aromatic popcorn rice are incorporated, and it’s all cooked together until fluffy



French Press Coffee

Our custom blend is made exclusively for our French press service. Tasting notes consist of dark chocolate, caramel, and hazelnut. A complex, full-bodied medium- to dark-roast bean that pairs perfectly with beignets or our signature Chocolate Praline Cake (32 FL OZ)


Abita Root Beer

Abita Root Beer is made with a hot mix process using spring water, herbs, vanilla and yucca (which creates foam). Unlike most soft drink manufacturers, Abita sweetens its root beer with pure Louisiana cane sugar. The resulting taste is reminiscent of soft drinks made in the 1940s and 1950s, before bottlers turned to corn sugar and fructose. Some soft drink makers add caffeine to their product, but Abita is naturally caffeine-free.

Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc - 2021

Chenin Blanc has a lot of structure on it’s own, but this wine has a tiny bit of Semillon and Grenache Blanc added to round it off. The aromas are flinty with honey, orange blossom and white stone fruit notes.

Maximin Grünhaus Schloss Riesling 2021

A precise and delicately defined dry-style Riesling, harvested from this estate’s wholly-owned hillside of contiguous vineyards.
