The Hit ListNew Orleans

The July Hit List: Marjie’s Grill, Pluck, Tapeh’s Water Ice, and More


New Orleans summer: We’re now deep in the thick of it. 

The time of year during which you may find yourself never turning your oven on. Like not even thinking about turning your oven on. Thankfully, local restaurants would be happy to cook for you, especially during this lowest of low tourist seasons.

And here’s where Resy’s Hit List comes in. As a reminder: Each month we bring you our picks of 10 restaurants we love, the spots you need on your dining radar right now. Some may be familiar; hopefully a couple will surprise you.

So keep it light with nigiri at Tsunami Sushi. Chill the fire with icy treats from Tapeh’s Water Ice. Or startle your system with the bold cooking of Marjie’s Grill, Remember though: Spend big and tip big, if you can. It’s dang hot in those kitchens outside your own house too.
