This quintessential New Orleans neighborhood joint near the Fair Grounds is famous for its elaborate (and potent) bloody mary, served in a glass with a handle — along with beer in enormous frozen mugs. Even those who just want a drink find it hard to resist Liuzza's gumbo, New Orleans barbecue shrimp and roast beef po-boys. Open Mon.-Sat. Food available.
