About Last Night – Serpas True Food



It’s a standing tradition that my husband and I share the evening of Mardi Gras together. We’ve only missed one year – when he was in Cleveland due to a work assignment. Our venue of choice, for the past couple of years, has been Serpas True Food. Located in the ever-evolving Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, Serpas always offers a live jazz band as accompaniment to their menu of New Orleans favorites on Fat Tuesday. Though limited to a special menu last night, I decided to stick with an old favorite of mine to get you started during your visit.


The House Smoked Salmon Chips are a go-to item when I dine at Serpas! A generous serving of smoked salmon and capers piled onto seasoned house chips makes this appetizer an ample meal for one, or a great appetizer for the table. If seafood isn’t your thing, I highly recommend the Eggplant Hushpuppies as your starter.

Serpas is definitely a place to try something new, so explore both the food and cocktail menus. Be on the lookout for Chef Scott Serpas and his wife, Dawn, while you’re there. Both are committed to the community, and will certainly make you feel right at home!
