Roux & Brew
All hail the king! On June 24th, Restaurant Sage hosted Roux and Brew, a celebration of the tastes of Louisiana. Blake Phillips, the newly crowned 2016 King of Louisiana Seafood, cooked up a royal seafood boil, which was paired with a cask of Shotgun Double IPA from Abita Brewing Company. Guests were treated to crab, crawfish, gulf shrimp, and all the fixings, served in a pirogue. The citrusy, hoppy IPA was the perfect complement to the spicy seafood mélange. After the meal, everyone danced the night away to the groovy sounds of Papa Docs, with a special appearance by Mark Smith on the washboard. Brady King and Jay Yates both made presentations to congratulate Chef Blake on his crowning achievement.
