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.
The sandwich special includes half a po-boy and gumbo, turtle soup or crawfish etouffee. Barbecue shrimp come with Creole butter sauce. No reservations. Lunch and early dinner Mon.-Sat. Credit cards. $$
