Coop’s Place

Top choice


in French Quarter

Coop’s is an authentic Cajun dive, but more rocked out. Make no mistake: it can be grotty and chaotic, the servers have attitude and the layout is annoying. But it’s worth it for the food: rabbit jambalaya or chicken with shrimp and tasso (smoked ham) in a cream sauce – there’s no such thing as ‘too heavy’ here. No patrons under 21.
