To ease the pain that the Tax Man brings every April 15th, Acadia Bistro chef/owner Seamus Foran will be offering his “Cheap Eats” menu on Friday, April 15th and Saturday, April 16th.

Normally a part of the Monday night menu, the Cheap Eats entrées are $12 each and consist of:

Cornmeal-Fried Louisiana Catfish with black eyed pea stew and jicama-salsify slaw

Cajun Jambalaya with smoked chicken, andouille sausage, house-made Tasso and smoked tomato relish


Louisiana White Shrimp Creole with black kale, button mushrooms, spinach and English peas


Slow Simmered Red Beans & Rice with choice of house andouille sausage –OR–smoked chicken Cup of Red Beans and Rice, Cup of Gumbo and a Cup of Jambalaya

All entrees can be made into a 3-course dinner with a house salad and bread pudding for $25.  The regular a la carte dinner menu will also be available. 

Whether guests in a mood to drown financial sorrows or spend their refund on an extra round, bar director Charles Campos will complement the fare with some new spring cocktails such as “Suzy Q,” a gin-based concoction spiked with the sweet-tartness of rhubarb marmalade.

Dinner service is from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. and reservations are recommended.  Call (503) 249-5001 to reserve seats.
