I've lived in Louisiana, so my expectations for a "Louisiana'" place in the Bay Area were not very high, but I was pleasantly surprised. The gumbo was good, as was the unusual barbecue shrimp, the sausage and boudin (from an Oakland supplier!) were first-rate, and the bread pudding was as good as I've ever had. Brussels sprouts sauteed in brown butter, garlic, and sage made a great vegetable dish. There are some California touches, but the vegetarian "jambalaya" was very tasty for a contradiction in terms.
Prices are on the high side for Louisiana, but reasonable by Berkeley standards. I'll be going back.
