I have been keeping my eye on the place that used to be Clouds, excited to see how the remodel and relaunch would treat the restaurant. I honestly believe that whoever the chef was at Clouds is one of the best Chefs in Santa Cruz. And I have honestly had some of the best food I have ever had on quiet afternoons at Clouds.
With the change over from being Clouds to becoming Louie’s Cajun Kitchen and Bourbon Bar I was stoked to hear that the ownership hadn’t changed, and hopefully that same Chef, whoever he or she is, is still there.
The day after the Grand Opening I cruised through, but it was too late at night and too insanely packed to sit and eat. So although I haven’t eaten there yet, I decided to post with fingers crossed hoping that this was a move to play to the kitchen’s strengths.
