Hot Dish

Where New Orleans - - WHERE NOW -

What’s new, now and not to be missed.


Chef Ricky Cheramie helms this ca­sual restau­rant, flex­ing Ca­jun coun­try mus­cles with a smidge of city flare. Coun­try-style bis­cuits, loaded with co­chon de lait and gravy, get a bright boost from mir­li­ton chow­chow, and it’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to pass up the “Coun­try Fried Filet Mignon” … ex­cept when tempted by the an­douillestuffed pork chop with ham-hock corn­bread dress­ing. 200 Ju­lia St., 504.324.4065


As its name sug­gests, ev­ery­thing about this sushi em­po­rium is like a gi­ant storm: a mas­sive in­te­rior, over­size menu and dizzy­ing food op­tions. The usual sushi sus­pects sit menu-side with funky items like cala­mari “fries” or the “Munchie” roll of salmon, cream cheese, avocado and a dust­ing of crushed na­cho cheese Dori­tos. Big ap­petites will want to hit the “Sumo Rib­eye,” a 24-ounce bone-in steak with gin­ger-caramelized onion but­ter. 601 Poy­dras St., 504.608.3474


This comfy space of­fers a cool respite for a scoop (or two) of ar­ti­san gelato, af­fogato (gelato with a shot of es­presso), crepes or pi­a­dini (pressed sand­wiches). Choose from 18 fla­vors of gelato and sor­betto; there is no wrong. All the bases are cov­ered, from ti­ramisu and hazel­nut to sea-salt al­mond and milk cho­co­late. On the sa­vory side, the rose­mary ham, Swiss and greens is ge­nius in a crepe. 4525 Fr­eret St., 954.618.8141 —LG
