Hungry Eyes East Riverside

map

You’ll definitely have a good time at this whimsical hot spot from the team behind Turkey and the Wolf, with its retro décor full of neon, lucite, and vintage tchotchkes; its selection of quirky house cocktails, assorted martinis, and apéritif-of-the-moment vermouths; and its short but definitely tempting crudo-to-curry menu.

Bar Pomona Marigny

map

Part jam shop (where co-owner Sara Levasseur makes her Jamboree Jams), part wine bar, this tiny but alluring Marigny favorite offers an array of snacks from kale salad to dill meatballs, serious weekend brunches, and homemade soft-serve ice cream. Potable essential: the martini with fig-leaf-infused vermouth and anchovy-stuffed olives.

Mulate’s Warehouse District

map

Take a deep dive into Southern Louisiana culture and cuisine at the Boutté family’s “original Cajun restaurant,” where there’s music every night (with dancing practically obligatory) and the menu lets the good food roll, with hand-me-down-recipe crawfish pie, jambalaya, étouffée, and all the other irresistible specialties of the Cajun kitchen.

Dr. Biruk Alemayehu and her family beguiled New Orleans with their authentic family-style Ethiopian cuisine when they opened the original Addis in 2019, and the magic lives on at this larger Bayou Road follow-up.

Gautreau’s Restaurant Uptown

map

This elegant little gem of a place, installed in an old Uptown pharmacy building decades ago, has new owners, but maintains the same kind of sophisticated and modern French-American-international menu that has long made it an under-the-radar favorite.

Gabrielle Treme

map

A go-to New Orleans classic since 1992 (transplanted to a new location after Hurricane Katrina), Gabrielle lets chefs Mary and Greg Sonnier interpret Cajun food with wit and originality. If it’s on the menu when you go (and go you should), don’t miss the smoked gumbo with hen meat and chicken-mango sausage.

Annunciation Arts/Warehouse District

map

This elegant contemporary Creole bistro, in a historic turn-of-the-century warehouse (in the Warehouse District, of course), hits all the bases with its gloriously tempting menu, spotlighting everything from fried oysters with spinach and triple cream Brie to veal Annunciation — a creation involving crawfish, shrimp, and green and yellow squash.

Wonderland + Sea Uptown New Orleans

map

Here’s a contrast to the lavish baroque specialties that define NOLA’s Creole cuisine: Just three main choices — wild-caught Gulf drum, fried boneless chicken, or housemade chickpea tenders — on a plate or in a sandwich, coming out fast and delicious, in a bright, low-key room. Don’t miss the sweet potato biscuits or the side of flash-fried bok choy.

Ruby Slipper Marigny Marigny

map

There are more than 20 locations of Jennifer and Erich Weishaupt’s brunch-centric restaurant chain around the South, but this one, near the site of their now-closed original, holds a special place in the hearts of hungry locals. Come for the beignets, the omelets, or the shrimp and grits, but don’t miss the prize-winning Bloody Mary.

Outpost 45 Lakeview

Coterie French Quarter

map

Don’t miss this brick-lined Decatur Street mecca for classic Cajun fare and genre-defining cocktails (the Sazerac is epic). Gulf oysters are a specialty, and one preparation — chargrilled, with herb-butter sauce and cheese — is an absolute essential.

The dining room adjunct to the Hotel Monteleone’s legendary Carousel Bar, Criollo blends traditional Creole dishes with urbane international fare in an elegant atmosphere of dark wood, limestone flooring, and warm lighting.
