Toups Meatery – Fantastic

I have been looking forward to dinning at Toups since I first heard it was going to open, and finally was able to take the family there last night. The entire dining experience was incredible – from the friendly staff to the wonderful food.

Started out with very well crafted drinks, and was told a drink menu was in the works. Then was recommended by the staff to get the crawfish stuffed artichoke – very good and packed with a crawfish stuffing and served with a clarified butter to dip in.

I then ordered the double cut pork chop which was glazed with cane syrup and served on top of dirty rice. This was by far the best pork chop I have ever had, and I loved the dirty rice.

My wife and daughter split the cafe brulot glazed spare ribs, which was served with various vegetable all covered in the café brulot glaze, and the two bites I managed to get were excellent.

My daughter (5 year old) ate all the vegetables without us telling her to!!!!!!

We then spilt the bacon and caramel doberge cake. Yes bacon and caramel and absolutely unreal.

I can’t wait to go back, as I want to try the entire menu, and I highly recommend this restaurant.

  1. We had a good meal, too. We had their charcuterie plate, a special beef tartare app, and fried brussels sprouts. All were good. I was really excited that they had decent cracklins. Most cracklins in New Orleans are crap. These were excellent, southwest Louisiana-style gratons. I want to get back and try some entrees.

    1. Had to "google'" this place. I had never heard of it. Here's the location:

      845 North Carrollton Avenue New Orleans, LA 70119
