Looking to have a fun brunch in Shreveport with mouthwatering Cajun food? Eat at Marilynn’s Place! Located in Shreveport’s historic Broadmoor neighborhood, Marilynn’s Place offers a quirky, “laissez les bon temps roulez” atmosphere. This converted gas station features an open kitchen, a collection of vintage posters hung on the walls, upbeat music and an indoor/outdoor patio to create a retro-New Orleans vibe. Everyone is family at Marilynn’s Place and the head chef makes sure everyone feels at home. The head chef and owner, Robert "Bozz" Baucom who named his restaurant after his mother, comes from a long career in culinary arts. His mission is to deliver New Orleans cuisine and style. This friendly chef truly cares about his customers and somehow always has time to make a round to say hello to everybody, as is true in many Louisianan restaurants. The menu offers a variety of New Orleans’s favorites including creamy crawfish etoufée, crispy fried catfish and their signature giant Hurricane Katrina Burger they describe as, “Big, messy, and unpredictable with all the options you can fit into a FEMA trailer: hamburger patty, NOLA roast beef, bacon, cheese, and jalapeño.” Robert Trudeau, a Shreveport local, says that his favorite dish on the menu is the fried shrimp Po-Boy, “The pluperfect fried shrimp Po-Boy in this corner of Louisiana might be the giant one at Marilynn’s Place. The large, which is about $16, feeds 2 or 3 people. The fat baguette of bread is one of the keys to the flavor. A bonus is the remoulade sauce; ask for an extra or two. An underground tip: ask the kitchen to butter and toast the loaf. They ordinarily do not take that step. Celestial deliciousness awaits.” The restaurant is open 7 days a week and often has live music and drink specials. But the real party is at Sunday Brunch from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Marilynn’s offers $12 Bottomless Brunch drinks with their famous signature build your own Bloody Mary’s and mimosas. Their brunch menu ranges from traditional shrimp and grits, to light salmon platters, to savory country biscuits with andouille sausage and gravy. Guests stay for hours on the outside patios while sipping drinks and mingling. Marilynn’s Place is more than just a restaurant. It’s a hub of friendly and fun locals eager to welcome new faces and new stories.
