Playing off the famous California Pizza Kitchen's fame, the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen is a New Orleans native creation that is as good or better than its famous cousin. Originally, the plan for us was to have an early dinner before it got too cold out, but with the weather taking a colder turn at night, we decided to just get something and bring it in. The hotel had a free valet service that took guests in a golf cart type device to local restaurants and bars, so I ordered a pizza from LPK and then took the service over to pick it up. Although the restaurant does not receive alot of to-go orders, they did oblige us with a nice selection available via take out.

Favorite Dish: We started with the corn choux which was very good. Thick and hearty with some grilled shrimp included. Next we shared the crawfish pasta. Sarah would have prefered more of the shrimp in the fettuccine, but was able to tough it out... yea, more crawfish for me. Finally we sampled the crawfish etouffee pizza, which was the highlight of the meal for me.
Popular among locals and one my personal favorites, this not-so-standard pizza kitchen serves pizza with a local twist. Pizzas topped with ingredients like andouille sausage and crawfish, LPK offers original mouthwatering treats on a delectable vessel of bread. The service is generally great and since it is also frequented by locals, servers pay close attention to you. There is a limited wine list, cocktails and beer. Outdoor seating can sometimes be an option.
You have to try this place.
Favorite Dish: Try my personal favorites: BBQ chicken pizza with BBQ chicken, corn and scallions as well as the roasted garlic pizza. Yep. ROASTED GARLIC PIZZA. It's everything you would imagine.
