In New Orleans, y’all know we love to eat and here at Where Y’Art, we’re all about the art. So, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite eateries that combine our two favorite things: New Orleans art and New Orleans eats.
Breakfast at ManhattanJack
Get your day morning jolt Uptown at ManhattanJack, home to the City’s coolest brews and hottest bagel sandwiches. Take a seat by the window, and enjoy a fresh, warm pastry as you feast your eyes on the works of Leroy Miranda, Jr., on display until August.
Lunch at Café Atchafalaya
Continue to eat your way through the City at Café Atchafalaya, known by us locals for their brunch menu. Combine their ‘make-your-own’ Bloody Mary bar with Debbie Willson’s photographs of the Atchafalaya Basin, the largest wetlands and swamp in the US, and it’s almost like you’re down in dat bayou. Debbie’s photographs are printed on antique mirrors, where you might just catch a glimpse of yourself enjoying a bite of your ‘Eggs Atchafalaya’.
Happy Hour at Compère Lapin
Stop in for a refreshing beverage at Compère Lapin, located inside The Old No. 77 Hotel and Chandlery, and recently recognized by Vogue, USA Today, and the New York Times for their signature
cocktails and Creole Caribbean style bites. As you sip on delicious aperitifs, explore the Where Y’Art satellite gallery’s ever-changing art on the first floor of the hotel.
Dinner at Pêche
Swing by the Warehouse District for dinner, and sample the best the Gulf Coast has to offer at Pêche. The Donald Link/Ryan Prewitt restaurant features a plethora of seafood including oysters, crab meat, and fresh gulf fish, prepared using live fire cooking techniques. Indulge in the area’s best catches, including Frances Rodriguez’s giant redfish, nautical tapestries and prints.
