Fettuccine Frenzy

It’s Fettuccine Frenzy at Middendorf’s Manchac & Middendorf’s Slidell!  Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in September, handmade paper-thin fettuccine is on the menu.

This mouth-watering dish is served with your choice of classic alfredo or marinara sauce and topped with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese with optional add-ons of shrimp, crabmeat, and chicken.  

Fun Facts:

  • Our handmade, paper-thin fettuccine was a guest favorite at Bella Luna in the French Quarter.  Bella Luna was a fine dining restaurant owned and operated by Horst and Karen Pfeifer.  It closed due to Hurricane Katrina and never reopened.  The memory of Bella Luna lives on through Fettuccine Frenzy at Middendorf’s.  Same Pasta.  Same Taste.  None of the Fancy.
  • Middendorf’s Owner and European Master Chef Horst Pfeifer makes the fettuccine from scratch which consists solely of Semolina flour and eggs.  It’s a very time-consuming process to make the fettuccine so paper-thin, but it’s definitely worth it.
  • Our full menu is also available.
  • Uncooked fettuccine is also available for purchase by the pound to make a quick meal at home.
