Easy Does It

Mardi Gras. Super Bowl. Game Plan.

New Orleans. Seems they’re hosting a little game this weekend. Plus Mardi Gras after that. Plus Aaron Neville’s birthday party every year, we assume. (You wouldn’t miss it.) Anyway, here are five new spots worth checking out next time you’re there. (For more, check out UD’s The Next Move.) Laissez les bon temps rouler and all that...

This Place Never Stops Playing Jazz
SALOON ANIMAL

This Place Never Stops Playing Jazz

Cold beer. Oyster stew. Live jazz every night. These are things that pair well with your life. And you’ll find them at this brand-new ballyhoo factory on Rampart Street. The building it’s in was supposedly the actual birthplace of jazz back in 1903. Happy birthday... jazz.

Caviar and Football. Sure.
VIVA LA REVOLUTION

Caviar and Football. Sure.

Lot of footballs and beads and beignets being tossed around out there. It’s hectic. It’s wonderful. But maybe you need a breather. Maybe at a place with some black truffle beef tartare and choupique caviar from a James Beard chef. That place: Restaurant R’evolution. That caviar: so Super Bowl.

Go Here for Big Boards of Meat
PLEASED TO MEAT YOU

Go Here for Big Boards of Meat

Meet the Toups family. They’ve called New Orleans home for the past 300 years. And turns out, in that time, you can get really, really good at making charcuterie. And duck choucroute. And porchetta. And it’s all waiting for you at Toups’ Meatery. They had you at meatery.

Oyster Tacos. Lots of Them.
QUARTER MASTER

Oyster Tacos. Lots of Them.

Soon enough, you’ll find yourself in the French Quarter. And soon enough, you’ll blow out your bead-tossing arm and head to this place to lick your wounds over martinis and oyster tacos. It’s a new Louisiana street food tapas spot. So congrats on that.

There’s this chef. Name’s Dominique. James Beard guy. And he’s got this little restaurant over on Magazine Street that you should probably pop by. He’ll cook you some spaghetti and Wagyu meatballs. Maybe some sweetbreads with chimichurri. Order a sh*tload of wine while you’re at it. It’ll be great.
