“Meauxbar is the modern neighborhood bistro for this reawakening stretch along the French Quarter/Treme border, where a new streetcar now rolls. Chef John Bel’s menus are both approachable and original, gracefully accentuating the French contours of modern American cuisine with carpaccio and escargot, classic fish amandine and roasted chicken or the French onion grilled cheese. Meauxbar feels intimate, easy-going and darkly romantic, with late hours that accommodate the pace of a French Quarter night.”
"You can feel the imprint of time all over this stately old townhouse, between the grand parlors, curving staircase and gracious front porch. Chef Nathan Richard’s cuisine, meanwhile, goes more contemporary. His style is elevated but still shows a jovial affection for big flavors, worked though modern Southern and regional Louisiana ideas."
"Longway, as led by chef John Sinclair and bar guru Liam Deegan, is the pub you wish you could park in for a few years. Sip a perfect Sazerac while you marvel at snacks that conjure the Big Easy without trying to copy traditional creole tropes.” - Jeff Gordinier, Esquire
