Seafood-filled mushroom caps
Named for a 19th century riverboat captain known for his practical jokes and beer-drinking pet pig, Simp McGhee's serves a variety of Cajun-inspired seafood and beef dishes in a quaint, elegant atmosphere. The restaurant's signature dish, mushroom caps, makes a great appetizer to share, but you'll want to keep them all to yourself.
