In New Orleans, spring brings an abundance of boiled crawfish and fried soft-shelled crab to local tables. Among the area’s restaurants now, there seems to be more of everything. Barbecue restaurants have flourished in recent years, and there are more options across the spectrum. Gogi Korean Restaurant expands the small group of Korean establishments. Hawaiian-inspired Poke Loa brings another raw seafood concept to the city. Effervescence is dedicated to Champagne and serves caviar and small bites. Festival food booth vendor Bratz Y’all opened a permanent location in Bywater, serving sausages and German-inspired fare.
There also are options for everything from crepes and doughnuts to seafood and steaks to burgers and pizza. There’s information about all sorts of local restaurants in Gambit’s Spring Restaurant Guide. The guide is arranged alphabetically, and listings include information about menu items, hours of operation, reservation policies and more.
