Declared the “Best in Beantown”, the fried catfish with a side of candied yams and collard greens is as textbook NOLA as you can get. Dine during one of the restaurant’s live jazz sets and you’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Bourbon Street.

Comfort food warms the soul, and this neighborhood spot serves it up with a Southern drawl. Two types of gumbo end up on the menu: the traditional is filled with smoked andouille sausage and pulled chicken, and the vegetarian take has a hearty amount of sweet potato, fresh okra, and hominy.
