Happy New Year Everyone! Weather is great for the celebrations. I know. Kind of chilly out. Upper 30s to upper 40s at the stroke of Midnight. Pass a good time, and be safe!

New Orleans’s Biggest Restaurant Openings of 2019 - [Eater New Orleans - All]


A table setting at Thalia Inside Thalia, one of Eater NOLA’s most important restaurant openings of 2019 | Randy Schmidt/Eater NOLA

In a year packed with new eateries, these rose to the top

Over the past year, New Orleans’s dining scene has continued to grow in ways that continue to make it one of the most exciting places to dine in the country. From long-awaited debut restaurants from some of NOLA’s favorite chefs to French Quarter spots refreshingly geared towards locals, 2019 brought a slew of exciting newcomers. Here are our picks for five of the biggest restaurant openings of the last 12 months.

Is your favorite 2019 newcomer missing? Let us know with a comment or email.


Zasu

Making its debut on New Year’s Eve last year, Zasu is from James Beard Award-winning former Gautreau’s chef Sue Zemanick. With Zasu she finally has her own restaurant, and the city is better off for it. Approachable but upscale with the feel of a neighborhood bistro, every item on the tight, thoughtful menu expertly showcases Gulf coast gems from seafood to produce.

Jewel of the South

The next restaurant debut to make an impact came in March, from Chris Hannah, the James Beard Award-winning former bartender at Arnaud’s French 75 and partner Nick Detrich (the team was also behind our favorite bar debut of 2018, Manolito). On the quieter, more accessible outskirts of the Quarter, the tiny 19th century Creole cottage housing this beautiful cocktail bar and restaurant feels refreshingly made for locals. While the cocktails may have top billing due to its founders, the food from behind-the-scenes chef Phillip Whitmarsh is an ever-changing mix of delightfully creative small plates.

Gianna

Opened in April, Gianna was the first new restaurant from Donald Link’s restaurant group since the beloved Peche, a Warehouse District neighbor. Chef Rebecca Wilcomb fully comes into her own with the delicate Southern Italian menu, featuring “tortellini in brodo” (broth), meat-filled pasta dumplings in clear chicken broth served with parmesan cheese, cured meats, locally farmed produce, Gulf seafood, and more expertly-crafted fresh pastas.

Palm & Pine

Another new addition to the outskirts of the French Quarter came in July, a hard-fought first restaurant from the couple behind successful pop-up Old Portage at neighboring bar Black Penny. Palm & Pine, like Jewel of the South, stood out for its seemingly thoughtful orientation to locals and fellow service industry workers — a wise move in a city whose restaurants face an annual tourist exodus every summer. The pair serves fresh and interesting food here, with an emphasis on local produce and flavors from “the South, and South of that.”

Thalia

The co-chefs and owners of the Garden District’s nationally-acclaimed Coquette opened their much-awaited second restaurant, Thalia, in August. The 37-seat restaurant on the corner of Thalia and Constance Streets in the LGD is a more casual counterpart to Coquette; kid-friendly, affordable, and built as a neighborhood gathering spot. With consistently delicious food and cocktails in a warm and hospitable setting at reasonable prices, we expect Thalia to be a favorite for years to come.

‘Top Chef’ Isaac Toups to Close Central City Restaurant After Four Years - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Josh Brasted/Eater NOLA

Toups South, located inside the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, will close next month

Cajun culinary mastermind Isaac Toups will close Toups South next month, four years after he and his beloved Toups Meatery team expanded with the restaurant inside Central City’s Southern Food & Beverage Museum.

Toups and his wife and business partner Amanda confirmed the impending closure to Eater on Thursday, December 26, with a statement that read in part, “we have an amazing relationship with the Southern Food & Beverage Museum and our partnership with them has been wonderful. In light of recent developments — a second cookbook in the works, a product line, a growing workload in television and the ongoing success of Toups Meatery — it became an operational necessity.”

The couple closed the statement by saying they “will be sharing exciting news soon regarding our new endeavors.”

Toups is a native of Rayne, Louisiana and opened his first restaurant, the Cajun country-oriented Toups Meatery, in New Orleans in 2012. He opened Toups South in the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in October 2016, the same year he appeared on season 13 of Top Chef (and won fan favorite). Toups released a Cajun cookbook last year, called Chasing the Gator: Isaac Toups and the New Cajun Cooking.

Eater has reached out for Toups South’s exact date of closure and will update this post when we hear back.

These Are New Orleans’s Essential Bars - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Cure | Josh Brasted/Eater NOLA

Cocktail bars, beer bars, and beyond

With one of the highest bars per capita in the country, choosing New Orleans most quintessential watering holes is no easy feat.

And with a range of venues spanning from posh to dissolute, the field is wide open. Fierce loyalties exist and surely any list will arouse passionate fingers in the air or indignant arms folded across the chest. How could you not include......? We know. We know.

This list represents a broad sampling of bars: dives, hotel bars, cocktail bars, beer bars, Irish pubs, and bars with live music — although the spots mentioned here are first and foremost bars, not music venues or restaurants.

So if we missed one of your favorites, take a deep breath and nominate it for consideration on our next update.

As always, this list is organized geographically, not by rank.
