stop by if you're in the neighborhood. food's not as good since the storm but still a fun place to eat, great atmosphere, stop by to watch the kentucky derby.
back and better than ever. We revisited Liuzza by the track after Katrina and were thrilled that the place, its ambience and glorious food were none the worse for wear!! Superb gumbo, garlic oyster po-boys, fishbowls of frosty draft beer... New Orleans neighborhood fare gets absolutely no better than this. So close to Jazzfest you hear, smell and otherwise experience everything unique and wonderful about this fabled city!!
Classic neighborhood hangout feeds Jazz Fest throngs and po'boy gourmands with huge portions and dive-bar charm..
Located mere steps from the New Orleans Fair Grounds, this Jurassic-era neighborhood barroom is a nerve center during JazzFest, and a comfortably seedy room the rest of the year. No frills, but the basics are solid--a single smoky room with sassy waitresses and frosty schooners of beer.
Though this is a dive with a capital D, that doesn't keep a creative kitchen staff from updating standard deep-fried bar fare. Soups and chunky gumbos are always outstanding, but the portions are out of control: A cup is a bowl, and a bowl is a vat. Salads are gargantuan plates of micro-greens topped with fresh seafood (fried shrimp are amazing) and house-made dressings. Po' boy selections break barriers with inventive combinations like fried oyster drizzled with garlic butter, or gloriously sloppy roast beef with gravy and horseradish mayo. Corned beef fans should give the crunchy Reuben a shot.
