Secrets from Latil's Landing
 

LOUISIANA MUSSEL SAUCE PIQUANTE WITH HERB GARLIC BREAD
Serves 4 appetizer portions 
 
2 pounds mussels 
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup diced onions
1 cup diced celery
cup diced green bell pepper
cup diced red bell pepper
4 garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 cup chicken broth
2  tomatoes seeded and diced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
salt and pepper to taste 
 
For herb garlic bread
2 garlic cloves minced
4 basil leaves chopped
cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Scrub mussels well and remove beards.  In a 6- to 8-quart heavy kettle melt butter over moderately low heat and stir in flour. Cook roux, stirring constantly, until color of peanut butter, about 6 minutes. Stir in onions, celery, bell peppers, garlic and cook, until soft. Stir in tomato paste, broth, tomatoes, and season with cayenne salt and pepper.  Bring mixture to a boil and simmer sauce, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes, or until thickened.  Stir mussels into sauce and simmer, covered, 4 to 8 minutes, or until mussels are opened.  Serve with garlic bread 
 
For Garlic Bread
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a small saucepan melt butter over moderate heat and stir in garlic, basil and parsley. Halve bread horizontally and brush garlic butter on cut sides. On a baking sheet bake bread until golden, about 5 minutes.

Chef Jeremy Langlois describes it as "Cafe Burnside and Latil's Landing having launched their very own specialty restaurant." Open only on Sundays from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm, we will offer a brunch in our Pavillion Ballroom. The menu will include breakfast specialties like Eggs Creole and Grits & Grillades. We will also offer our Crown Jewel Burger and our specialty dishes from the Latil's Landing menu. Brunch will be casual with a larger, more varied menu that the whole family can enjoy.
