Mac'n'cheese is better than Prozac

The OH and I went to a new-to-us restaurant for brunch - Piccadilly Catering in Foster City. They have a Cajun brunch buffet every Sunday.

http://www.piccadillycatering.com/cajun.htm

They didn't have everything listed on the menu (didn't see any smoked chicken, gumbo, or grits), but -

They had the best Jambalaya I've ever had outside New Orleans. (And since one of my favorite restaurants is Creo La, which has very good Jambalaya, that's saying something.)

The mac'n'cheese was the best I've had in a long time, and so was the fried chicken and peach cobbler. The BBQ pork ribs were excellent. The specials were prime rib and crawfish etouffé, and we could have had cooked-to-order broiled or fried catfish if we'd asked for it. Brunch came with individual crab cake and deep fried prawn appetizers with creole sauce, delivered to the table.

I appreciated that they had serve-yourself coffee, because when I'm in a coffee mood I drink a lot very fast and feel guilty pestering the wait staff to bring more. The coffee was very tasty.

The hostess/proprietress, Pam, made us feel very welcome even though we arrived a bit early and not all the food was out yet. (So we got to concentrate on the Jambalaya for a while.) It's a small place, holds about 32 people. Price is a flat $23 per person, which includes tax.

(Oh, and she's really cute.)

Ooh. Did the place look wheelchair-accessible to you?

IIRC, there were no barriers to getting inside, double-wide entrance door, and an open space by the door, so getting in and getting a table once inside would be OK.

The main thing I'm not sure about is whether you could get back to the table once you went through to the end of the buffet. I think so, but I'm not positive.

But the chairs and tables were lightweight and easily moved, so they'd probably be able and happy to adjust their seating to accommodate if needed. (They're primarily caterers, so I suspect used to accommodating.)

Thanks for the info! I suppose it's too much to expect that they would cater something in San Leandro. :-) I don't really want to pay for something catered down here. I'd much rather go up there but I'm not likely to get up there any time soon.

I think they would cater to San Leandro. Their main business seems to be catering weddings, and there aren't that many wedding venues in Foster City. But yeah it would be pricy. You can also get large (60 or 100 serving) catering trays if you want to do the service yourself.

Also, I heard her say to someone that you can do carry out from the Sunday buffet for $15.
