Red Beans Monday

Red Beans & Rice History

Mondays used to be the traditional “wash day” of the week. Women of the house would put on a pot of red beans to cook all day while they tended to the laundry, since the meal required little hands-on attention. The beans were largely seasoned by the leftover hambone from the previous night’s dinner. This has set the tone for the Monday tradition of Red Beans & Rice.

The Rib Room will be featuring Red Beans & Rice Mondays for 9 dollars a plate giving locals and visitors the opportunity to enjoy a deep-rooted Creole tradition.

In addition to the Red Beans & Rice, guests will have the option to “dress” up their plate by adding Crispy Mississippi Catfish, Fried Pork Chops or Slow Roasted Chicken.
