LaGarde American Eatery opens in Milton for cajun cuisine and cocktails

Located in the Crabapple Market development at 1935 Heritage Walk, LaGarde will celebrate its official grand opening on Friday, Jan. 6. Chef Jamie Adams and partner Leonardo Moura opened the first location in 2019.

The menu reflects that of the Chamblee location, with dishes including shrimp etouffee, red beans and rice, oysters, po’ boys, and jambalaya, along with desserts such as bread pudding and beignets. A weekend brunch menu, set to launch Jan. 14, will feature items including blackened salmon avocado toast, eggs Benedict and fried egg BLT sandwich, as well as brunch cocktails.

The indoor/outdoor bar offers cocktails, frozen drinks like the rum-based Painkiller, local and New Orleans beers, bourbon, whiskey and wine.

Designed by Vivien Leigh Interiors, the LaGarde space features “graffiti–like vignettes, a tempting oyster display and an ‘everything goes’ atmosphere,” along with an outdoor seating area, according to a press release.

Dinner hours are 4-10 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, 4-11 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays and 4-9 p.m. Sundays. Starting Jan. 14, brunch will be offered beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
