A rendezvous with the past By Angie Dumas, DaStylishFoodie.com

Steamboat Warehouse, located in Washington, LA, is set along the timeless banks of Bayou Courtableau. Serving award-winning dishes, diners find themselves treated to a forwardthinking menu in a one-of-a-kind historic setting. The Concept: Steamboat offers Cajun/ Creole cuisine with an elevated flare in a casual atmosphere. Behind The Name: The original steamboat port warehouse, built circa 1819, was converted into a fine restaurant that boasts a museum quality atmosphere and photo worthy platings. Interesting Fact: Everything is original inside the restaurant, which is the last standing steamboat warehouse in Washington (the third oldest settlement in Louisiana). For The Health Conscience: When looking for a greener option, go for the sensational salad. It is made with fresh mesclun greens, grilled tomatoes, asparagus and marinated grilled chicken breast and finished with fresh, shredded Parmesan cheese. Menu Favorites: Regulars rave about the Catfish Diane, Redfish Lafourche and Steak Lafitte.

Eggplant Belle Rose - Fried eggplant topped with gulf shrimp and blue crab stuffing, smothered with creamy seafood sauce with fresh bluepoint crab.

Crawfish Palmetto – Pan-fried filet catfish served on a bed of wild rice pilaf smothered with crawfish cream sauce with fresh crawfish tails.

Manly Option: When looking for something more substantial, order the oven roasted quail. Two semi-boneless quail are set on a bed of smothered potatoes with smoked sausage and drizzled with a mouthwatering rosemary white wine demi-glaze. Served with sautéed haricot verts.

Romantic Spot: If being surrounding by historic memorabilia, request the center of the restaurant near the Steamboat sign. However, if you prefer a bit more privacy, along wall in the back corner might be the perfect fit for your date.
