Luke’s Restaurant New Orleans – Luke’s is a fabulous brasserie (French for cafe which is also a restaurant) located in the heart of New Orleans’s downtown area just south of the well-known Canal Street. It is one of several restaurants owned by famed chef John Besh. John operates an organic farm which provides some of the vegetables and meats for this restaurant. Start out your meal with a Sazerac, one of the oldest cocktails in the world which actually originated in New Orleans in the late 1850’s. Then jump right into the amazing appetizers.
A couple of plates that we can recommend from first hand experience are the Rabbit Pate and the blood sausage. Great salads including the fresh tomato salad when in season. Choose from a plethora of main dishes with some excellent seafood selections. Also look for individual specialties based on the day of the week. A full service bar includes several custom locally brewed beers. Their wine list focuses exclusively on French produced wines. Visit: www.lukeneworleans.com
