Here are some good suggestions from Harmony St. Charles who writes a blog, Harmony St. Charles – Informal Guide to New Orleans, that I reviewed last weekend. These are more up to date that the mostly old style ones I did yesterday, although she provides some classics also. First, here are her four favorite Creole/Cajun places.
Christian's is her favorite (not everyday) Creole spot. It is a beautiful upscale restaurant in an old beautiful church built in 1914. Reservations are required. It is located at 3835 Iberville Street (504) 482-4924 Located in Mid-City 4$
Clancy's is her favorite Cajun/Creole mix old New Orleans cooking place. Reservations are required. It is located at 6100 Annunciation Street (504) 895-1111 It is in Uptown. Both Clancy’s and Christina’s are both jacket and tie style dining
Mr.B's is where she goes if she is in the French Quarter. Royal St., New Orleans, LA (504) 523-It is located at 2078 French Quarter. I have been there also and it’s good.
Harmony also recently ate at Oliver's and had said she had a surprisingly wonderful old fashioned meal. 204 Decatur St., New Orleans, LA (504) 525-7734 French Quarter 2$ - The City Guide for New Orleans says: “The menu at this local favorite includes authentic Creole family cooking with traditional recipes handed down for generations, including a sampler of three different gumbos and Creole rabbit, all served in a relaxing atmosphere to the sounds of jazz and classical music.”
She also recommends the following.
Jacque-Imos, also Creole, is usually busy but the food is great, very small quarters though and they put a capital F in funky decor. It is located at 716 Iberville St. (Uptown) (504) 861-0886. Here is a review.
Marigny Brasserie in the Faubourg Marigny is recommends. She says it has been getting good reviews and is located at near some great music places – see next weekend.
Casamentos’ is near Tipitina’s and has great po-boys. It is located at 4300 Magazine St. (504) 895-9761
