Two trends have been running concurrently as the torrent of new restaurants join the New Orleans dining scene these past few years: a greater variety of food and later hours.
But as Jazz Fest pushes bedtimes later this week, I’ve provided notes on new places that have opened up the late-night options.
This list is by no means exhaustive – and many restaurants extend their normal hour during Jazz Fest time anyway – so if you have a good addition please post it in the comments section below.
Bouligny Tavern - from the chef behind Lilette, elegant bar food like duck confit, gouda beignets and burrata salad. Until 2 a.m. Fri./Sat.; midnight Mon.-Thu. 3641 Magazine St., 891-1810.
Capdeville - gastropub standards – burgers, fancy cheese fries, truffle mac and cheese — in a practically hidden downtown location with a nice bar. Until 1 a.m. Fri./Sat.; 11 p.m. Mon.-Thu. 520 Capdeville St., 371-5161. Gambit review.
Chiba - right next to the Maple Leaf Bar (typically a madhouse at Jazz Fest time), Chiba does sushi with a contemporary sensibility. Until 1 a.m. Fri./Sat.; midnight Wed./Thu.; 11 p.m. Mon./Tue. 8312 Oak St., 826-9119.
Kukhnya - new inside the music venue Siberia with “Slavic soul food” – pierogi, blini, egg noodles and the “Polboy,” a Polish sausage po-boy. Until midnight Wed.-Mon. 2227 St. Claude Ave., 265-8855.
Lost Love Lounge - pho, spring rolls, noodle salads and banh mi from the kitchen of a neighborhood bar. Until midnight daily; later on Fri./Sat. 2529 Dauphine St., 949-2009.
Root - making a name for itself with a vengeance in the Warehouse District with wildly creative cuisine beside traditional charcuterie. Until 2 a.m. Fri./Sat.; 11 p.m. Mon.-Thu.; 9 p.m. Sun. 200 Julia St., 252-9480. Gambit review.
Sylvain - a handsome addition to the Quarter, thankfully trafficking in gastropub trends – farmers market salads, burgers, pastas — more than New Orleans clichés. Until midnight Fri./ Sat., until 11 p.m. otherwise. 626 Chartres St., 265-8123. Gambit review.
The Three Muses - a global take on tapas –Italian to Creole to Spanish – right in the heart of the Frenchmen Street scene, with live music too. Until midnight Fri./Sat.; 10 p.m. Mon., Wed., Thu. 536 Frenchmen St., 298-8746. Gambit review.
Yuki Izakaya - Japanese-style small plates – clams in sake butter, cod roe rice balls, octopus dumplings — and a menu of sake. Hours vary, but are always very late. 525 Frenchmen St., 943-1122. Gambit review.
