5 Great Oyster Joints in New Orleans

Anne Roderique Jones 13 comments

On a recent trip to New Orleans, I set out on a mission to try as many Gulf oysters as possible in the span of one weekend. My goal: to sample them both raw and cooked, with visits to some of the city's historic and new-school oyster bars (and a touristy joint thrown in for good measure). Sadly, I missed a few of the classics on this trip due to timing and season, but I still found five that really knocked my socks off. More

Eat This Now: Rabbit Dumplings From Cochon, New Orleans

Anne Roderique Jones 3 comments

When working your way through the list of New Orleans restaurants, everyone (including us) will tell you to hit Cochon, the much-lauded new(ish)comer to the Central Business District. You'll hear it so many times that you're sure there's no way it can live up to the hype or be as mind-blowingly awesome as everyone raves about. But somehow, it is. It's that good—if not better.

First Look: Fast-Baking Wood-Fired Pizzas at Dolce Vita, in New Orleans

Slice Eric Leath 2 comments

Ask Bogdan Mocanu if he is using his bright red Stefano Ferrara oven to make Neapolitan-style pizzas, and he will quickly tell you that the type is strictly his own. The oven alone drew me inside Mocanu's newly opened Dolce Vita to grab a menu; potentially finding a different style of pie was a compelling reason for an in-depth look. More

A Sandwich A Day: Catfish Special at Wayfare in New Orleans

A Sandwich a Day Abby McCartney Post a comment

A few years ago, Freret Street in New Orleans was a run-down stretch lined with vacant storefronts. Then came a craft cocktail bar (Cure) and a neighborhood market, sparking a renaissance that has made Freret the place to be for eaters and drinkers. One of the newest arrivals to this up-and-coming scene is the month-old Wayfare, which offers soups, salads, and sandwiches in an elegant atmosphere. More

Slice Carey Jones 3 comments

When I have just a few days in New Orleans, I don't usually spend them eating pizza. (Can't bring myself to neglect all those beignets and po' boys.) But on NOLA foodman Pableaux Johnson's recommendation, we checked out the pizza at John Besh's Domenica last weekend, and I have to say I'm glad I did. More

Bartender's Choice: What to Order at Bellocq in New Orleans

Drinks Carey Jones 2 comments

It says something about the talents and reputation of Neal Bodenheimer, Kirk Estopinal, and Matthew Kohnke— best known for Cure in New Orleans—that they can open a bar entirely dedicated to 19th-century cocktails and have it be a runaway success. Cobblers and sherry cocktails and milk punches—"These ancient forms of drinks seem sort of bizarre to us," Kirk Estopinal told me, "but that's why we find them fascinating." We asked Estopinal to show us three of his favorite drinks right now; here's what he poured us. More
