Dougie Vís Esperanza Plantation Restaurant, has brought back steak night by popular demand along with a change of menu in 2007.

Every Saturday night, the restaurant, located in Luling on River Road near the bridge and next to the Ramada Inn, will offer ribeye and filet steak dinners for under $14.

ďWe also have house specialties that will melt in your mouth,Ē said Dougie, describing shrimp beignets with a rasberry pepper jelly, pecan-crusted catfish with meuniere sauce and parmesan-crusted redfish with lobster butter dishes recently added to both the lunch and dinner menus.

ďOur menu is classic creole, with gumbo, jambalaya, crab cakes and bread pudding with rum sauce just a few of the delicacies we offer,Ē he adds.

Dougie Vís is owned by the Villavaso family and Executive Chef Doug Villavaso, Jr. has studied with Emeril Lagasse at Delmonicoís Restaurant.

Dougie has over 30 years in the restaurant business. He opened Dougie Vís Esperanza Plantation Restaurant and Lounge in 2004 and focused on offering ďfabulous food in a friendly atmosphereĒ.

Besides steak night, kids eat free on Wednesday nights and Friday is seafood night.

ďWe have multiple rooms that can accommodate five to 500 people. We cater weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, office parties, seafood boils and more. Our restaurant seats 150 guests and the Chu Rouge Lounge is a great place to unwind at the end of a busy work day,Ē says Dougie.
