The pizza at Domenica, Alan Shaya's spot in the Roosevelt Hotel, was so good that he decided to dedicate an entire restaurant to it. The Uptown pizzeria focuses on Neapolitan pizzas topped with seasonal ingredients and house-cured meats. The menu features speciality pies, like the ode-to-NOLA muffaletta pizza, plus a few salads and appetizers, like top-notch garlic knots and house-smoked chicken wings.
This Uptown Mexi-spot (run by Chef David Wright) doles out tasty tacos (obvi) and a host of other delicious options that are all made from scratch. And to wash it all down, they also feature a selection of more than 100 mezcals and tequilas.
Run by Executive Chef and Owner Phillip Lopez, Square Root is the sequel to the outstanding and innovative resto Root, and it centers on a modern kitchen design, where contemporary culinary techniques are the main attraction and an eclectic menu will keep surprising you as you try more and more of it.
This Uptown breakfast resto might have a bland name, but the menu is anything but, with upscale offerings like croque madam, sweet and savory crepes, specialty omelettes, and of course, toast (made with house-made brioche).
Brought to you by the owners of Finn McCool's, Treo brings inventive craft cocktails and small plates to Mid-City, a neighborhood that’s traditionally been more of a po-boy, beer-and-a-shot kind of place.
Located in Uptown NOLA, Carrollton Market is brought to you by Chef Jason Goodenough and it doles out modern Southern fare ranging from their Andouille-Stuffed Chicken Breast to “Chicken ‘n’ Dumplins”, which is made with house-made potato gnocchi, speck, crème fraiche, and tarragon.
Although it's a bit of hike from the city proper, this pint sized bistro in Harahan is worth the trek. Traditional Italian cooking informs the extensive menu of wood-fired pizzas, pasta, and seafood. What makes Oak Oven especially unique is the fact that it grows most of their own produce for its salads, pizza toppings, and pasta sauces.
After years of popping up around town, this resto now has a permanent Mid-City location, while still serving up modern riffs on Filipino classics. Its namesake, the Milkfish, is grilled then topped w/ coconut milk curry and a spicy kimchee-esque red cabbage slaw.
Located at the Roosevelt Hotel, the Fountain Lounge is an upscale bar and resto serving fine cocktails and small plates in an ornate space featuring rich wood floors and luxurious fabrics.
Even if you aren't one for vegetarian food, Seed will make you a believer in all things plant-based. Everything at this Lower Garden District restaurant is vegan, and the menu features creative dishes like Southern Fried Nuggets, which are made with deep-fried tofu and chickpea flour and served with your choice of dipping sauce. Seed also makes a strong case for spiralized noodles, especially when dressed in avocado pesto.
