Bon Ton, the New Orleans-style Vietnamese-Creole restaurant and bar from the imaginations of Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins of the Lawrence in Midtown and Hieu Pham of Crawfish Shack on Buford Highway, is set to open for dinner tonight, even though the liquor license is still pending.
Look for the kind of boiled and fried seafood platters Pham made famous at Crawfish Shack. But the menu also includes items that reflect Pham’s mix of Cambodian, Chinese and Vietnamese heritage, including sweet and spicy cold noodles, and Lo Lat beef rolls wrapped with betel leaves.
And then there’s the likes of a Nashville hot oyster roll, a Cajun shrimp burger, crawfish smoked Gouda mac and cheese, and an unusual applewood-smoked snow crab preparation.
