Bayou Wine Garden
New Orleans, LA
Bayou Wine Garden, the adjoining sister restaurant of Bayou Beer Garden, is a Mid-City mecca for well-priced southern small plates from an open kitchen with a wrap-around bar. Small plates include popcorn escargot, served brined and flash fried with anchovy butter, and crispy peking pig ears with hoisin vinaigrette. Bayou Wine Garden also offers a selection of sandwiches, like one with fried smoked shrimp, and bigger plates of quiche lorraine and spinach and artichoke mac & cheese. The casual interior showcases curved bars accompanied by two-tops and cozy, rustic booths.
