Restaurant adds to variety, character ofHaymarket dining experience
By JJ. Harder
Cajun Man finally has a home
Adam Sandler’s Saturday Night
Live character would fit right in at
Lincoln’s newest restaurant, Kerry
O’Ryan’s French Quarter, one of a
number of new restaurants in the
downtown Haymarket area.
O’Ryan’s is located under the O
Street viaduct on the southern edge
of the Haymarket district, bringing
the best of the bayou up north.
All the traditional Cajun and
Creole cuisine is on the O’Ryan’s
menu. Red beans and rice and fried
okra, both classic items, are served
in healthy portions. The gumbo (a
hodge-podge soup with chicken,
sausage, rice, vegetables and sea
soning) is quite meaty, but not as
spicy as I expected for a New
Orleans restaurant. O’Ryan’s jam
balaya is better than the gumbo,
with succulent rice and no over
load of flavors.
The seafood dishes may be the
restaurant’s weak spot. Both of the
etoufee dishes, shrimp and craw
fish, are without an excessive fishy
taste, but they seem to lack the
notch that TV chef Emeril Lagasse
would probably kick them up to.
O’Ryan’s blackened chicken is
the specialty. It’s a grilled breast of
chicken, covered in crushed pepper
and loaded with spice.
And not the Tico’s hot-sauce
kind of little-kid’s spice, I mean
water-now kind of spice. It tasted
like the dish was heavy on
cayenne, warning novices to stay
clear. If you have a pacemaker, you
probably had better order a burger.
But when it gets too spicy,
O’Ryan’s cornbread is there to
help you out. John Coffey wouldn’t
be asking for some in the “Green
Mile,” but it’s worthy of ordering
an extra piece.
The menu also offers a Cajun
sampler - if you can’t decide what
to order, it has a little bit of every
thing. Two vegetarian items also
grace the menu pages. And you can
always order buffalo wings if you

definitely different when com

that plagues downtown.
