The modern, glass-andconcrete Central Business District might not seem like the best place to find an authentic New Orleans
restaurant. But Maypop ( maypoprestaurant.com),
the new dining hotspot from native Louisiana chef Michael Gulotta, is just that. Gulotta has had plenty of practice blending Creole and Southeast Asian cuisine at his Mid-City hotspot, MOPHO; at Maypop, he takes things up a notch for even more ambitious flavor combinations that reflect the
city’s multicultural blend.
