Joe’s OK Bayou claims to be “da best Cajun,” but there’s also a humility to the enterprise—starting with the playful name and extending to decor that alludes to a low-country shack with a sheet-metal awning and rough wooden walls. Home-style cooking comes naturally to owner Joe Wheatley, whose father farmed grain and raised hogs before opening similarly rustic restaurant The Feed Mill with other members of the family in a former feed-storage building.
Since 1995, Joe and his team have striven to introduce Louisiana flavors to a northern audience, seasoning crawfish étouffée and chicken-and-sausage gumbo with spices that are bold but not painfully hot. Visiting in 2008, the Courier-Journal’s Marty Rosen found that this mission succeeded, with “bold, accessible flavors, friendly, quick service and extremely affordable prices.” He also found oysters “big and glossy with fine, firm textures—as fresh-tasting as any I've eaten along the Louisiana or Alabama coasts” on the menu’s wide selection of simply prepared coastal creatures—fried gator tails, catfish filets, and frog legs among them. Abita beers, the star of the drinks menu, hail appropriately from Louisiana, and join wines and other domestic and imported brews at the full bar.
A veteran of international hotel kitchens, newly appointed Executive Chef Josh Bettis upholds his philosophy of fine cuisine with fresh, quality ingredients while imbuing his upscale American fare with a local spin at The English Grill. The decor at his restaurant honors the elegance of the historic building in which it lives?the 90-year-old Brown Hotel?with varnished wood pillars, oak paneling, and stained-glass windows. In fact, Chef Bettis even cooks up the hotel's de facto trademark, the Hot Brown sandwich?an open-faced masterpiece stacked high with turkey, bacon, and a delicate Mornay sauce. Lauded by publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Southern Living Magazine, and the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food, the time-honored treat has been attracting guests for more than 85 years.
The Hot Brown isn't The English Grill's only epicurean triumph. Chef Bettis and his staff curate the seasonal menus with contemporary cuisine, complementing diverse flavors with the spicy corks of more than 200 wines. The English Grill has garnered a prestigious AAA Four-Diamond rating and impressed Esquire food and wine critic John Mariani so much that he has called it "one of the finest restaurants in the United States."
As Tommy, one of Howl at the Moon’s piano players, explains on the club’s website, “Every night…we try and throw a party, regardless of whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Saturday night.” The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.
Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Servers stand over patrons to plunge jello injectors into their mouths, and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86-ounce booze buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.
Bolstered by chocolate-making credentials gained by studying in Italy and San Francisco, Coco's Chocolate Cafe owner Fred Moore leads his team as they handcraft a menu of drinking chocolates and rich treats made from Valrhona and El Rey products. They give their signature turtles a twist with Madagascar vanilla beans, dip orange peels into pools of dark chocolate, and crown bourbon balls with sprinkles of chopped pecans. For romantic occasions, they also create lifelike chocolate roses ideal for presenting to a loved one or laying at the grave of a chocolate bunny. Inside the cozy café, warm lighting splashes from pendant lights onto tangerine walls and granite-topped tables as customers devour european mousse in white-chocolate cups and cool off with vanilla affogatos—chilled espresso and ice cream topped with fresh whipped cream and served in martini glasses. The shade of a red awning makes the outdoor patio's wrought-iron tables ideal for savoring homemade ice creams, such as peppermint-infused mint chocolate chip, espresso vanilla, and a vegan cashew-based variety.
