Milk Bar's sandwiches come on specially made La Boulangerie bread, an entire round ciabatta loaf used for each tasty creation.
Milk Bar has opened its second location in Uptown, providing New Orleans residents on the other side of the city with a taste of their fast and friendly service and delicious sandwiches. Strangely enough, Milk Bar has little to do with dairy products, instead named for Australian institutions that exist somewhere between corner stores and delis. The vibe here is no different, owners greeting patrons and occasionally hopping behind the counter to whip up some of the fun sandwiches, all of which described in brief by the plays on words that constitutes the names. The Speared Pig is a particularly tasty creation, matching smoked ham with asparagus spears and a Hollandaise sauce. The Shrimply the Best is another example, taking New Orleans seafood to the next level with pesto, mozzarella, red onion and lemon mayo. For a delicious taste of simple sandwiches made with care, Milk Bar is hard to beat.

You pay only what you think your meal is worth at Meson 923, where each delicious dish is truly priceless!
Meson 923 is housed in a beautifully restored warehouse a short distance from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, a humble locale for one of New Orleans' best new contemporary dining locations. Baruch Rabasa stepped up after Chef Chris Lynch's departure, and the complete lack of slowdown speaks entirely to Rabasa's talents. Trained at the Culinary Institute of America, Rabasa melds fine dining French techniques with the cuisine of his Mexican heritage and Barcelona relatives. Almost everything goes through a sous vide treatment at Meson, meaning the beef filet falls apart at the touch of a fork. Meson 923 gets incredibly packed on weekend nights, so guests are well advised to make reservations, although there is balcony seating that is walk-in only.
