This Texas-based chain draws inspiration from the vibrant French Quarter in New Orleans, and it attempts to channel that scene in both atmosphere and cuisine. Wooden slats and and brick walls provide the base for the bayou-themed decor in Pappadeaux's low-ceilinged, massive outpost in the Denver Tech Center. Groups flood the place for the seafood-based menu, which includes Louisiana specialties like shrimp creole, crawfish etouffee and gumbo, as well as plenty of fruity, alcoholic beverages. A Sunday brunch buffet invites a veritable orgy of eating, with diners able to sample not just the entrees, but breakfast fare such as pancakes, omelets and much, much more.
