The Restaurant ...
Acadiana is a contemporary Louisiana fish house, the only restaurant
in the nation's capital to serve Louisiana cuisine at a heightened level of elegance. Chef Jeff Tunks cherishes his
years working in New Orleans. In September 2005, he opened Acadiana to celebrate the bounty of Louisiana. Featuring the finest
of seafood and premium meats, he and Executive Chef Brant Tesky employ various cooking techniques from the colorful ethnic
areas spanning southern Louisiana, serving up the rich and complex flavors - the roux, the rémoulades, the bisques,
and the étouffées, for which the region is known. Acadiana's contemporary décor captures the atmosphere
of warm breezes and mysterious swamps.
Magazine named Acadiana one of the "Best New Restaurants", and Washingtonian magazine deems it one of the city's
"100 Very Best Restaurants".
