When you think of the South, you probably think of southern food, but Atlanta has so much more to offer. This past weekend before I went to the Dogwood Festival, my friends and I stumbled upon a cool new restaurant Bon Ton. If the name in itself doesn't entice you, the unique fare and drinks certainly will.
This restaurant is the perfect mash up of Cajun x Vietnamese cuisine. Although it may sound like a strange combination, Bon Ton does a great job at balancing the two. The menu items are flavorful and full of spice. Each one of the menu items that I tried I enjoyed.
Some of the menu items that I tried included:
Boil House Sausage and Seafood Gumbo - (MY FAVE)
Five Spice BBQ Shrimp - BBQ flavored large prawns
House Catfish Poboy - Fried catfish on a soft baguette
Xo Rice - White rice drizzled in spicy suace
Smoked Bourbon Mai Tai - A smokey twist on a traditional Mai Tai.
Aside from the food giving you a kick, the decor is sure to make your head spin back in time with its funky 70's inspired living room theme dining area and bar.
This is definitely a cool spot with unique cuisine to try and is Cass in the City Approved!
