Need a break from the bounties of the sea prevalent in New Orleans restaurants? Book a table at this classic Argentine steakhouse. While most steakhouses are clubby, masculine, and hard on the wallet, this Warehouse District eatery feels more like a party. The kitchen coaxes flavor from less expensive cuts, like flank and hanger steaks. Sides include empanadas, thick rounds of provolone grilled and sprinkled with oregano, and house-made pasta, a nod to Argentina's large
Italian population. After dinner at La Boca, you'll walk outside and be surprised to discover that you're not in Buenos Aires.
