Coming to NOLA May 22-25! what are the new hot spots?


I am flying into New Orleans May 22-25 for the wine event. I will be staying in the French Quarter at the Ritz. I live in Napa CA. however, am from the south originally. I have been to all the old standbys and am looking for the new hot scene in NOLA! My husband is a winemaker and I am a chef. Thank you in advance for your time!

    1. Cochon, LaBoca, Rio Mar

      1. There's also Iris and Restaurant One.

        1. Not necessarily new, but if you haven't eaten at Cuvee', you should put it on your list. Excellent. You might enjoy Cafe Adelaide as well.

          1. Not exactly brand new but hands down the best meal we've had in NO for years was at Iris. Respect for regional ingredients but free of regional cliches. Had a dinner party at Cochon last weekend and was underwhelmed but it was a Jazzfest weekend and they were slammed.
