Restaurants in New Orleans
Don’t let the modest, rustic appearance and off-the-beaten-path location of Domilise’s Po-Boy & Bar on Annuciation Street fool you. The food here is well-worth a sidetrack. Once inside you’ll find simple tables and wood-paneled walls, and possibly a line.
Operating under the motto "Anyone can put the heat to the meat, but only a few can barbecue" since 1983, A & R is perhaps the pinnacle of BBQ in Memphis.
It looks innocuous enough—picture windows; green walls cluttered with framed artifacts and photographs; paintings—all askance, and each checked tablecloth adorned with salt and pepper and the ubiquitous and addictive Crystal hot sauce.
Brigsten’s restaurant is led by chef/co-owner Frank Brigtsen, who produces spicy, home-style Acadian/Creole dishes in a cozy, century-old cottage in Riverbend.
Husband-and-wife team David and Torre Solazzo converted the boxy St. Tammany Parish court office into a Cal-Italian restaurant in 2002. The walls still retain their original brick, but chandelier lighting and blond-wood accents give the space a softer quality.
Serving up Cajun and Southern cuisine, Cochon on Tchoupitoulas Street is owned by James Beard award-winning chefs Donald Link and Stephen Strykewski. The spacious dining area boasts high ceilings, large windows, handmade modern wood-plank chairs and tables, and a bar made of etched steel.
