Here’s what $200K buys in the French Quarter right now - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Homes in the Crescent City’s oldest neighborhood

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Today’s price: $200,000 (or thereabouts). Vote for your favorite below.

Don’t be disenchanted by the lackluster photos. This 443-square-foot ground floor condo on Dumaine Street actually has a lot going for it, including a shared courtyard and a separate bedroom with French doors that open to the sidewalk, admitting plenty of light and air. Crown moldings, 11-foot ceilings, and gas lamps bring the circa-1830 abode’s antique vibes into play. The asking price is the lowest of the bunch at $194,5000.

This brick building looks as bland and featureless as a Metairie apartment complex—but surprise! It’s actually on Dauphine Street, right across from Port of Call, as the listing points out. The 551-square-foot interior is equally nondescript but comfortable, including a living area and separate bedroom. Perhaps most enticingly, the condo’s asking price has dropped $76,000 since it was first listed in March, and it’s now sitting at $199,000.

This 386-square-foot condo feels larger thanks to a two-story floor plan that divides its space into a living area and bedroom. Its open living area features the rustic-meets-sleek look so prevalent in renovated French Quarter homes. Exposed brick fireplaces juxtapose gleaming subway tiles. The condo also offers homeowners a shared courtyard, and the asking price is $199,000.

This cute studio sits in a French Provincial structure built in 1839. It’s only 338 square feet, but it packs a lot of style into its space, thanks to its mantel, granite kitchen counters, and fresh white bathroom tiles. The unit is square-shaped, with a grid-like floor plan that places the kitchen and the bathroom right next to each other, overlooking the living/sleeping area. A narrow, brick courtyard spans the side of the building. It’s asking $199,900, and condo fees are $267/month.

At $212,500, this 357-square-foot studio is the priciest of the bunch...but it also has something none of the other condos can offer: a third-floor balcony facing Dumaine Street. You’ll also find the requisite exposed brick walls, French doors, and heart pine floors, plus a shared courtyard.

This $1.95M Uptown manse is all business in the front, party in the back - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


The backyard boasts a pool, surround sound, fire pit, hot tub, outdoor kitchen...the list goes on

This Uptown mansion’s grave masonry facade gives no indication of the colorful modern design that lurks within. Beyond its columns and arches, there’s a 4,993-square-foot interior that is as luxe as it is lively.

Flanked by a modern light fixture that looks like the love child of a space station and a Tetris game, the center entry divides a formal living room and dining room. Large, transom-topped windows provide leafy views of the yard, and Carrara marble floors are a cool counterpoint to the home’s vibrant collection of art, which includes pieces by Ashley Longshore.

A den and kitchen complete the quadrant of rooms downstairs, and a central staircase provides access to the second floor and its collection of five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The home’s most unusual feature is its basement—you’ll rarely find this amenity in a city with a water table as high as New Orleans’. It’s hard to tell if this basement is completely subterranean or it it is partially raised, but the presence of windows suggests the latter construction method. A home gym and den with a brick fireplace complete the low-slung space.

The masonry home is business in the front, party in the back, thanks to a resort-caliber pool and outdoor kitchen with a fire pit and hot tub. There’s also an outdoor shower and bath.

Situated by Tulane University in the toniest of tony neighborhoods, the circa-1908 property wants $1,950,000.

Where to Eat the Best Ya-Ka-Mein in New Orleans - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Manchu’s ya-ka-mein | Josh Brasted/Eater NOLA

‘Old Sober’ is an iconic New Orleans noodle soup and hangover cure

Ya-ka-mein, a meaty noodle soup known as Old Sober, is New Orleans’s tried and true hangover cure. It’s commonly found at corner groceries and takeout spots, and is a staple at the neighborhood parades called Second Lines and city festivals. More recently, it’s also made inroads in New Orleans’s white tablecloth restaurants.

Spelled a myriad different ways (yakamein, ya-ka-mein, yaka mein, yaka meat), ya-ka-mein is street food, dished up by vendors from the tailgate of pickup trucks. The soulful brew is a crossbreed of Asian and African-American culinary traditions, typically made from a combination of beef, cooked eggs, green onions and noodles stewed in a spicy, salty broth.

The most popular explanation of it’s origins is that black soldiers who fought in the Korean War got a taste of the food and brought it back home, where spouses, mothers, and grandmothers made the recipe their own. Another is that Chinese immigrants who came to Louisiana to work on sugar plantations and railroads brought their noodle soup with them and introduced it to their African American co-workers.

However it got here, a steaming bowl of Old Sober is a distinctly New Orleans dish. Here now, Eater’s guide to the city’s ya-ka-mein, arranged geographically.

Know of a great ya-ka-mein we missed? Send us a tip.

On Oak Street, a circa-1830 corner store houses unexpectedly luxe living quarters - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


A peeling corner store that is 3 stories tall

You won’t believe how beautiful its interior looks

Homes in New Orleans run the gamut from beautiful to busted...and sometimes, you’ll find both types under one roof. That’s the case with this 190-year-old corner store residence on Oak Street. The 6,000-square-foot building houses commercial business space on its first floor, which is currently occupied by Driscoll Antiques & Restoration. The utilitarian space features large windows, ceiling fans, and the lopped-off corner that’s the hallmark of residential businesses. There’s also an office and a large workshop outfitted with industrial fans and garage doors.

The difference between the first and second floors couldn’t be more striking, or more representative of the distinctly New Orleanian contrast between high and low. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom abode looks like a luxe Garden District mansion. Wood paneling, crystal chandeliers, interior columns, crown molding, pressed-tin ceilings, and medallions create an aura that’s all the more opulent when juxtaposed against the home’s peeling exterior siding. It’s hard to believe the interior and the exterior are part of the same house.

There’s also a third floor, which was last renovated in 1924 (and looks that way). The compound-like abode also includes off-street parking for three cars, and it’s asking $1,190,000.

Partially collapsed Hard Rock Hotel scheduled for implosion - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


A collapsed building in downtown New Orleans Photo by Emily Kask via Getty Images

Two bodies will be recovered after the implosion

More than a month after its uppermost floors collapsed, killing three workers and injuring 30, the Hard Rock Hotel remains a blight and a menace, its crumbled concrete walls a tomb to two victims whose bodies remain inside. Rampart Street is still blocked to through traffic; a crane hangs haphazardly over Canal Street; and several blocks remain under evacuation orders.

The dangerous, tragic situation continues to affect New Orleans’ most densely populated tourist destination, but yesterday, the city announced some progress. Kolb Grading LLC and its affiliate Dem/Tech will implode the building “no earlier than mid-January 2020.”

Yes, it’s a vague estimate, but the city’s press release promises “the demolition timeline will be more precisely communicated in the weeks to come.” Rampart Street from Iberville to Canal streets and Iberville Street from Burgundy to North Rampart streets remain closed through the implosion.

Jose Ponce Arreola, Anthony Magrette, and Quinnyon J. Wimberly died in the collapse. Wimberly and Arreola’s bodies will be recovered after the implosion. According to New Orleans Fire Chief Tim McConnell, the demolition will take place over nine weeks, and cleanup will last three months. That means cleanup will take place during the height of tourist season, when the French Quarter hosts crowds drawn by the Bayou Classic, Sugar Bowl, and Mardi Gras parades.

The neighboring Saenger Theatre will resume its program in mid-December, when a protective pedestrian walkway is erected.

Residents and businesses affected by the collapse may visit https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela, call SBA’s Customer Service Center at (800) 659-2955 or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov for information about disaster assistance.

After a Century in the Same Family, Uptown Institution Pascal’s Manale Has New Owners - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Pascal’s Manale/Official

The DeFelice family sold the iconic New Orleans restaurant to car dealer Ray Brandt

Pascal’s Manale, among the oldest Italian restaurants in town and the birthplace of one of New Orleans’s most distinctive dishes, has been sold to new owners after 106 years in the same family, reports NOLA.com.

Founded in 1913 and in its fourth generation of family ownership, Manale’s may be best known for creating New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp, its Creole-Italian fare, and a beloved stand-up oyster bar.

Longtime proprietor Sandy DeFelice confirmed to NOLA.com yesterday that the family sold the Uptown restaurant to Ray Brandt, a local car dealership mogul with a dozen brands. DeFelice called it “the right time to turn the page in our lives and start a new chapter.” The Brandts’ nephew Carmen Provenzano, who spent 12 years working at the restaurant in the 1990’s and early 2000s and currently works for the dealership, will serve as Manale’s manager moving forward.

Pascale’s Manale will remain open, and members of the DeFelice family will be on hand to consult the Brandts through the transition.

A renovated West Carrollton cottage wants $350K - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Cottage behind trees and landscaping

The 75-year-old cutie sits in a super convenient corner of New Orleans

It’s not quite Mid-City. It’s not quite Hollygrove. It’s not quite Riverbend. But somehow, West Carrollton combines the best of all these neighborhoods. Situated on a tidy fenced lot at 8518 Pritchard, this 75-year-old cottage is five blocks from Carrollton Avenue and one block from Earheart Boulevard, which means it’s about a 15-minute drive from almost anywhere in the New Orleans metro area.

The 1,660-square-foot home was renovated in 2014. Its charm begins the minute you step through the fence onto the shady, landscaped front yard, where a vine-hung garden arch and deep front porch welcomes visitors.

Inside, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom abode cleaves to a fairly standard floorplan among converted shotgun doubles: one side is a long, narrow open living area consisting of a den and kitchen. Hardwood floors are present throughout. Granite-topped counters, a subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and modern glass pendant lights bring a stylish edge to the kitchen.

In the rear of the living area, glass French doors overlook the fenced backyard, which also has a small deck. Two exposed brick chimneys lend texture to the area.

The asking price is $350,000.
