Port of Call

838 Esplanade Ave.
New Orleans, LA, 70116, United States
TEL: (504) 523-0120

Port of Call represents the best of classic "divey" eating in New Orleans. Situated centrally in the French Quarter, this burger joint-steakhouse combo is the perfect place to refuel during a night of Bourbon Street bar-hopping. The ambiance is intentionally no-frills, consisting mostly of low-lighting, scuffed wood bar, and fishing nets that cover the ceiling. This creates an atmosphere somewhat belied by the upscale-meets-potent cocktails, which are served with a flourish in short huricanne glasses. And while the steaks are always reliable, the indisputable stars of the menu are the cheeseburgers, served with onion straws and massive baked potatoes.

Insider Tip:

Asked to be seated in the front room, which offers street views and, more importantly, access to the classic juke box.
