Top choice caribbean in CBD & Warehouse District

Chef Nina Compton became a household name via the TV show Top Chef, but her New Orleans restaurant is anything but a celebrity flash in the pan. This is wonderful cuisine that sits at the intersection of the Caribbean and Louisiana Creole taste universes, serving curry goat and sweet potato gnocchi and jerk drum fish.

The resulting marriage of culinary influences is spicy, playful and as colorful as a carnival parade.
