A new Brooklyn restaurant is winning over diners with its laid-back atmosphere and Cajun-inspired menu. Lowerline, located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, was launched by chef John Verlander, who hails from Louisiana and graduated from Tulane University. Lowerline specializes in oysters, po’ boy sandwiches, gumbo, and other Cajun-Creole favorites. The restaurant joins two other establishments that have brought Louisiana delicacies to the Brooklyn area, but is the standout thanks to its oyster selection and oyster dishes.
- Lowerline is an eatery in Prospect Heights, opened by a Tulane University graduate.
- John Verlander is a former Louisiana native, a chef, and proprietor of the Cajun-Creole restaurant.
- Lowerline is merely one of what has proven to be a Cajun-Creole trend of eating spots in the Brooklyn area.
“Gumbo Bros. concentrates on excellent gumbos, while Café Booqoo is more into the sandwiches.”
