Classic, old New Orleans bars are great, but what about something new? Somewhere with good bar bites and delicious cocktails/drinks? There are a few skeptics out there, but I welcome this change! It adds a newer and more modern bar vibe to the New Orleans scene…
Drink: Manamana. Food: Empanada. Chicken thighs. Corn. Egg. Quesillo. Cilantro. Smoked tomato aioli.
Fish & Chips. Beer-battered local whitefish. Fries. Tartar Sauce. Curry Ketchup.
Ramen. Japanese noodles. Soft-poached egg. Pork Belly. Pork Broth.
I was pleasantly surprised! The chef and I came at an off hour..somewhere right in between lunch and dinner. The weather was nice and the atmosphere was comfortable. Our bartender was really helpful! The menu was broad, yet simple with their own interpretation of a dish from each country. I would say that the ramen isn’t your classic ramen noodle dish in that the broth is deeper and is soy-based, but it’s a good change up. My favorite would have to be the empanadas. I’ve had an obsession with empanadas since my first taste not too long ago and these were perfectly flaky on the outside and filled with well-seasoned chicken on the inside. Oh, and the Bywater Bomber…it was DEElicious! Cold and refreshing with the perfect amount of “juice”.
