When summer arrives and the temperature heats up in Louisiana, there isn’t much we can do but rely on the 3 S’s to get us through the brutal summer heat: Sippin’, Sittin’, and Snackin’!
If you’re not from Louisiana, or the South, bless your heart and let us break down the three S’s for you…
In this hot and humid climate, there’s nothing better than cooling off with a refreshing beverage! We’ve got a wide range of beverages for your sippin’ pleasure including one of our guests’ favorites, our famous Red Wine Sangria! Our Red Wine Sangria is crafted with a red wine base and combined with brandy, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice & a splash of sprite, and then garnished with fresh fruit – available by the glass or pitcher! It’s oh-so-tasty and oh-so-refreshing!
Exerting too much energy will just make you sweaty and that’s NOT a good “S”! We want our patrons to sit back and relax while enjoying dinner on the open-air patio under our cool-air misters…it’s amazing what a fine mist will do for bringing down the heat! And on the weekends sittin’ on the patio has another advantage: LIVE MUSIC featuring local musicians for a unique dining experience!
Snackin’ is one of our specialties! We’ve got 9 unique snacks (or ‘Small Plates’ as we call them) including Andouille Boudin Balls, Shrimp Massey, and Shrimp and Grits! Shrimp and Grits are a Southern tradition, but Portico serves them up with a new twist: sautéed shrimp rolled into a ball of creamy cheese grits and then fried to achieve a crisp outer exterior. Perfect for your snackin’ delight!
Oh, and there is actually a fourth “S”…it’s Swattin’.
And if you’ve spent any time in Louisiana during the summer, you know exactly what e’re talking about…SKEETERS! We can help give you a break from them too!!
Even though the temps rise to miserable-and-four degrees, we are proud to serve our great state of Louisiana with great food, great drinks, and great entertainment…all in a great atmosphere! Come on by and and practice the 3 S’s with us!
