  • Smokehouse Grill, a new restaurant in Bucktown, is now open.

Smokehouse Grill (200 Metairie Hammond Highway, 504-252-4797), a new barbecue and grill restaurant, opened in late May on the edge of Bucktown.

Owners Brandon Herty Arnold and chef Joe Rouchon met while working at New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co.

An indoor smoker is used for meats on several barbecue plates — including brisket, chicken, St. Louis-style ribs and pulled pork — but there is more than smoked meats (as the giant “Not Just BBQ” sign on the building’s roof declares).

The all-American menu includes classics such as spinach and artichoke dip, Cobb salad, burgers, a turkey club sandwich and several steaks. There also are Creole seafood dishes, such as a crab cake Napoleon layered with shrimp, fried green tomatoes and remoulade. Barbecue shrimp are served over smoked Gouda grits. The menu also features crawfish bread, fried oyster and shrimp baskets and blackened redfish topped with crawfish cream sauce.

Joe Rouchon's wife Mandy runs the pastry part of the operation, and desserts include white chocolate bread pudding, a skillet chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate fudge caramel doberge cake.

The restaurant is finalizing cocktail and drink menus, and a brunch menu is in the works, Arnold said.

Smokehouse Grill is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
