Head Chef Cristina Trinh of Sara's Bistro honors the traditions of New Orleans with her menu of seasonal and local products, but not in the way one might think. While the menu does include staples, such as crab salads and pork chops with praline pecan sauce, the chef gets a kick out of throwing in a few twists—dishes like coconut curry tofu with homemade tofu, braised curry-spiced lamb shanks "Osso Bucco", or crawfish spring rolls with sweet chili oyster sauce. It’s this inventiveness that defines Sara’s Bistro, which seeks to honor not only New Orleans’ Creole heritage but also its history as a port city for international travelers and their travel sporks.
Cooking has always been a family affair for chef Mohammed Hanif. His childhood days were spent in Old Delhi, India, learning the ways of the kitchen from his grandfather. His young adulthood was spent working by his father's side in a New York restaurant.
Today at Al-Noor Indian Cuisine, chef Hanif is joined by his wife and daughter, who take care of the front of the house and day-to-day operations as he plates up authentic Indian dishes in the kitchen. He cooks in the Mughlai style, which includes rice biryani dishes, clay-oven-cooked meats, and curry-like baltis. Diners use warm pieces of freshly baked naan bread to mop up their entrees or as tiny toasty blankets during mid-meal naps.
