Southern US in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

In a neighborhood full of flashy new restaurants, Queenie's is appealingly old-school, even though it opened in 2017. This is a counter-style spot with frozen daiquiris for a hot day and delicious hand pies. The kitchen also slings a good po'boy, as well as good-value soul-food hot plates, from shrimp and grits to chicken and waffles.
