BINTLIFF’S AMERICAN CAFE wins the 2015 WMPG annual Fat Tuesday Cajun Cookin’ Challenge!

Congrats to 2015 Cajun Cookin’ Challenge Champs, Bintliff’s American Cafe. Bintliff’s, soon to be renamed Bayside American Cafe, served a Gumbo with Chicken and Andouille Sausage with Mini Corn Cakes. Tasty!

This year’s runner-up was USM’s own Aramark/USM Dining who treated us to a delightful Shrimp and Scallop Etouffee with a sip of Sazerac – yes the real stuff.

It was an incredible event and given the giant walls of snow lining the streets here in Portland the turnout was fantastic! Other contenders this year included Congress Bar & Grill, 2014 winners Bayside Bowl, Po’ Boys & Pickles , Gritty McDuff’s and Izzy’s Cheesecake .

WMPG broadcast the entire event which featured New Orleans music from WMPG DJs and a great live music performance from The Cajun Aces.
