Contemporary Southern | Central Business District, New Orleans

I made the mistake of booking the Grill room. I thought I was booking tea in the salon. After getting over the disappointment of not doing our annual tea that we have done for the past 20 years, I was pleasantly surprised with the Grill Room. Our waitress Deitra went out of her way to get us the Christmas tea that we had waited for all year long!! I’m not saying I would skip our annual tea next year but wouldn’t mind coming back to visit for brunch one day. More

WarbucksWarbucks

Contemporary American | Uptown, New Orleans

Warbucks is an ultra-magnetic neighborhood restaurant that mixes technique and creativity in equal measure. Located on Magazine Street in New Orleans' historic Uptown neighborhood, Warbucks is the brainchild of Executive Chef Todd Pulsinelli, former Executive Chef of August. Here, Chef Pulsinelli takes the commitment to quality and the techniques of a fine-dining restaurant and reinterprets them for a playful and laid back environment with a casual selection of small plates, sandwiches, and salads. Chef Pulsinelli’s menu and décor harness the essence of 90s rap, skateboarding, and hip-hop culture to serve up imaginative and eclectic dishes. In true New Orleans fashion, Warbucks features to-go cocktails and frozen drinks, as well as a full bar. More
