Bywater - New Orleans
The nighttime-only venture plays with the same bold, global palette and vegan leanings as its daytime sibling, Sneaky Pickle. That means even more starters, like housemade charcuterie with pretzel crostini and fried pickled onions with ranch. There is a robust collection of pastas, too, including squid ink hand-pulled noodles with daikon, shrimp, and chile. And, unlike the Pickle, there’s a full battery of main courses! Hanger steak with beet-molé marinade; grilled romanesco with grits and pistachio salsa verde; and, blessedly, the famed smoked-tempeh reuben from the Sneaky Pickle.
