Fodor's Expert Review Nola

$$$ French Quarter American Fodor's Choice

Fans of Emeril Lagasse will want to grab a seat at the food bar overlooking the open kitchen at his French Quarter restaurant. Freewheeling appetizers are among the big attractions—the stand-out being "Mama's stuffed chicken wings" with peanut dipping sauce—while entrées, such as the garlic-crusted drum, are filling but delicious. Be warned: after a few bites of the buttermilk fried chicken with whiskey-infused sweet potatoes, you may start looking for property in New Orleans. Leave room for desserts like the Vietnamese coffee doberge cake. The space is arty and bright, and the atmosphere is delightfully buzzy.
