The absence of a fluttering Cajun flag, then, was no surprise. But the presence of a savory Cajun bread pudding ($8) was a puzzle, especially considering Woodwork's compact kitchen, which offered little room for invention. (I probably would have plowed ahead with a more publike mac 'n' cheese, with chorizo or pulled pork, if the Fulham backer behind the bar hadn't steered me straight.)
Individual ingredients didn't jump out, but the flavor profile was unmistakeable. The texture, too, was wonderful — as lively as a sidewalk stepper on the second line.
