The Hit ListNew Orleans

The June Hit List: Cafe Amelie, Yakuza House, Baru, and More


With the arrival of June, festival season has officially passed here in New Orleans, leaving us to face the heat and humidity that can feel as though a big dog is panting on you.

This month’s Resy Hit List explores newcomers Seiji Omakase by Little Tokyo, and Yakuza House for cooling sushi; Baru Bistro & Tapas and The Gloriette, located across Lake Pontchartrain where the towering pines and an abundance of waterways drop the temps by several degrees; and Joe’s Lobster Rolls, a food truck serving specialties of the New England coast.
