Apps / Small Plates in the Warehouse District or on Magazine

We will be in New Orleans for Art for Art's Sake on Saturday, October 6, and are hoping to stop in several different restaurants over the course of the evening for appetizers and drinks. We always go to Luke for their HH oysters, but are looking for suggestions for other places that we can stop in for a quick bite without committing to a longer dinner. Any ideas?

  1. Do you mean anywhere on Magazine, or on Magazine in the Warehouse District?

      Magazine from the lower Garden District up to Napoleon. Thanks!

    2. Lilette is nice. Go to Bouligny Tavern next door for drinks before going to Lilette.

      Lilette @ 3637 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 895 - 1636.

        Lilette, and be sure to order the truffle parmesean toast with marrow. We have made a meal of 6 or so apps plus a split entree (they do this for you in the kitchen). They will serve it in courses much like a tasting menu. Bottles of prosecco are reasonable.

      2. Bouligny Tavern has a good small-plates menu exactly for that purpose. Same ownership as Lilette next door. Would also recommend Coquette for drinks and appetizers at the bar, at corner of Magazine and Washington. While not on Magazine, other Uptown places good for drinks and snacks include Cure on Freret (fantastic cocktails and small plates) and Delachaise on St Charles for the goose-fat fried pomme frites and great wine selection.
