What is Acadian Seafood?
Our menu has been inspired by the Nova Scotia heritage, combining spicy Cajun cuisine with old world English charm. Hence, the East Coast fresh fish and seafood with a Cajun flare.
So, just how does the Eastern Canadian provinceof Nova Scotia inspire a "Cajun" spirit more commonly associated with southern Louisiana? Well, the over 500,000 "Cajuns" descended to the bayous of Louisiana from a region called "Acadia".
The original colony of Acadia was establishedin 1605 by French settlers and centered in EasternProvince of Canada; present day Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.This French colony was ceded to the British and in 1755 many of the French colonists were exiled. Some returned to their homeland, but many migrated south to the bayous of Louisiana,where their descendants, commonly known as 'Cajuns' speak an archaic form of French and stillpreserve the distinct culture of their ancestors.
