Riverview Restaurant and Brewhouse—the new restaurant concept that Margaritaville Resort Casino Bossier City unveiled on March 3—was designed for parties. There are sharing plates, huge desserts, 30 beers on tap, a couple of wines on tap and an upstairs, adults-only game room with everything from a The Walking Dead-themed pinball machine to a jumbo Connect Four set. Both levels of the restaurant will host a 318 Restaurant Week party called “Eat, Drink and Play the Riverview Restaurant Way” on Tuesday, March 14. The event will be hosted by Tiana Kennell of The Times. Tickets are $45 per person and must be purchased in advance. Tickets can be purchased here.
“We’re all just big children on the inside, and what I love about the Riverview Restaurant space is that it encourages us to play,” Kennell says.
The set menu for “Eat, Drink and Play” will include an appetizer of “Cajun queso”, a made-to-order brick oven pizza with up to three toppings, the restaurant’s specialty Southern strawberry shortcake dessert (an oversized serving of strawberry shortcake made with a biscuit instead of cake) and two seasonal Great Raft Brewing beers or glasses of Silverado cabernet. There will be door prizes and giveaways throughout the night as well as the chance to explore the game room upstairs.
The pizzas and flatbreads that come out of Riverview Restaurant and Brewhouse’s brick oven are crisp and wafer-like. That Southern strawberry shortcake is a decadent whopper of a dessert made with what your mamaw may have called a “cathead biscuit.” I enjoyed the pizza well enough but found myself envying my neighbors’ beautiful burgers. The menu is huge and has a few eye-popping surprises (Philly cheese steak egg rolls, you say?) that I can’t wait to return and try.
There’s a whole lot going on during 318 Restaurant Week. Check out the official website for a complete list of one-night-only dining experiences as well as daily prix fixe $10 lunch and $20 dinner specials at more than 35 restaurants.
