food near the airport, traveling through

Flying into New Orleans to work on a Habitat house, but first going to Mobile to visit. Where can we eat near the airport at about 7pm that won't take us too far away from our highway to Mobile??

  1. FISHERMAN'S COVE is a seafood market, which supplies it's sister restaurant, The Harbor, which is next door. Hence, reall fresh seafood.

    We have gone there on the way to & from airport pickups.
    It is a joint. Nothing fancy at all & near the airport.
    Basic boiled & fried menu.

    1. Fiesta Latina is pretty solid Central American restaurant.

      1924 Airline Dr., 504-469-5792

      It's only about 5 minutes from the airport.

      1. I would stongly suggest that you look into La Parvenu, (504-471-0534) 509 Williams Blvd in Kenner. You will exit the airport on Airline (US-61), in lieu of I-10 (highway to Mobile, if it's open) head East for about 2 miles to William's and turn right (toward the River). Drive over the RR tracks and look to your right - low LA plantation-style building. Very good "local" food in a nice setting. It's mid-end, in my $book, and well worth the $. Once done, you can backtrack on William's Blvd (toward the Lake) and pick up I-10.

          Right near Le Parvenu on Williams is Restaurante da Piero, northern italian. A mile or two from the airport on Roosevelt just of Vets (just east of the intersection of Williams & I-10) is Madrid--spanish food (paellas, etc).

        2. try calas bistro and wine cellar at 910 west esplanade . about 10 minutes from the airport. take williams towards the lake to west esplanade and make a right . about five minutes down on the right side just before chateau . contemporary louisiana food .

          1. I would reccomend Sandro's, a great cheap Italian joint (its in a strip mall, but don't be fooled)....its right off the Veterans exit which is one exit toward the city from Williams.

              And in the same strip mall as Sandro's is Siamese Thai, better-than-decent thai food with an inexpensive lunch special.
