Bon Ton is a fun, intimate restaurant with a strong New Orleans vibe (that tin ceiling!) and plenty of beloved seafood offerings. The starter menu alone will make you realize you’re in a seafood restaurant like no other, as you can order tasty appetizers like charbroiled crab claws and boiling peanuts. When it comes to deciding what you’re going to order for your main, however, things get a bit more difficult. The loaded menu offers seafood by the pound (including cajun crawfish, snow crab, and jumbo shrimp), single and double fried fish platters, and delicious sandwiches like the Bon Ton Banh mi with a choice of fried shrimp, blackened catfish, or cauliflower falafel as a protein.
The good times are certainly rolling at Bon Ton, a cocktail bar that blends Cajun flair and Vietnamese flavor. There’s no better way to quite literally get a taste of this intriguing combination of locales than with a drink from their equally enchanting cocktail menu. Upon glancing at their selection of libations, you’ll come across everything from the Nola-approved Bon Ton Hurricane to the Frozen Vietnamese Irish coffee (a caffeinated sip made with plenty of Jameson).
