From the First Bite at Fat Calf Brasserie, I Fell Madly in Love.

I have to be honest with you, I have had a very toxic relationship with Fat Calf since then. Yes I want this local business to thrive in Shreveport. However, does everyone and their mother need to love this spot as much as I do? A reservation is a must if you want a table, and you need to be okay with a tight space if you want to get cozy at the bar.

What did the crew at USA Today have to say about Fat Calf? Check it out below.

"A brasserie is a small, informal and unpretentious neighborhood restaurant. Owners Anthony and Amanda Felan fulfill that definition with their small but welcoming restaurant serving French-inspired Southern cuisine. Customers can expect a variety of shareable appetizers and hearty entrees, a nice selection of craft beers, specialty cocktails and wine. The menu, with plates such as a crispy Brussels sprouts and crispy duck breast, changes with the seasons and uses locally sourced ingredients. − Makenzie Boucher, The Shreveport Times" You can click here to see the complete list of the best restaurants of 2024.
