Staff Report

For the past two months, Creole Novelle has been drawing crowds to 1793 Deacon St. for lunch Monday through Friday.

Owner Esther Lucchini serves up creole and cajun specialties like seafood gumbo, jambalaya and crawfish etouffee as well as oyster po’ boy and prime rib po’ boy sandwiches, cajun pasta and a popular bread pudding.

On a recent visit to the Creole Nouvelle, every table was occupied and a line for takeout stretched out the door.

“We’re thrilled,” Lucchini said. “People in Los Alamos have really embraced the restaurant.”

Now Los Alamos diners will have even more opportunities to sample the fare at Creole Novelle.

The restaurant is now open 6-10 a.m. for breakfast and continues with lunch service through 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Fans of Southern food can get grits and gravy, but breakfast burritos and omelettes are also now available.
