There’s probably no such thing as “enough” places serving good New Orleans-inspired food in NYC, but at this point, it’s clear that we’re not even close. One solid addition, though, is Parish. This bar on the LES serves things like gumbo, jambalaya, and po’ boys, along with a massive, very good muffuletta (even the half-size is really big). Come during Happy Hour (weekdays until 8pm) for some $4 beers and discounted food, or get a booth with a group and drink some cocktails before checking out the DJ in the room in the back.
