The May Hit List: Osteria Lupo, Taj Mahal, Bayona, and More


After a seeming lull, there appears to be an uptick in restaurant openings around the Crescent City. 

Still, we can’t live on newness alone, right? This month’s Resy Hit List, then, is a mixture of fresh-baked spots and decades-old classics. Experience the new Italian-style at Osteria Lupo or ’80s-style at Hungry Eyes. Or stick to the legends by dining at Taj Mahal or Bayona. Or play in both sandboxes. We all know that’s the proper approach — in May and all the other months.
