New Orleans

You and your pooch can belly up to Cosimos' huge mahogany bar and order a cold craft brew or a cheap cocktail to wash down an order of greasy comfort food from the hearty American menu. While you’re slurping back crawfish by the bucket, sinking your teeth into the crispy Boudin balls (Cajun sausage), or indulging in the rich Cuban sandwich with its perfectly melted cheese, you can rack up a game of pool, throw darts, or just chat up one of the genuinely friendly bartenders. Unlike some of its Quarter neighbors, Cosimo’s is not open 24 hours … instead this relaxed neighborhood watering hole is rife with charmingly eclectic decor and a horde of colorful locals.
