What You'll Get
People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with comforting eats: for $10, you get $20 worth of New Orleans–style comfort food and drinks at Gattuso's Neighborhood Bar & Restaurant, located in Gretna. This Groupon is valid for dine-in or carryout.
Gattuso's extensive menu delights diners with classic New Orleans dishes, down-home comfort food, and bar-fare favorites. Torpid tongues are whipped into tip-top tasting shape with starters such as the chicken and andouille gumbo ($4.25 for a cup, $5.99 for a bowl) and the chili-cheese waffle fries ($8.50). Several scrumptious salads, sandwiches, muffalettas, and wraps—including the popular grilled-shrimp wrap with grilled onions, melted mozzarella, and Creole mayonnaise ($8.50)—comprise lunchier plates. Entrees such as the catfish platter ($13.99) and the baby-back ribs ($17.99) snuggle up to fries and a salad to the delight of evening eaters, while stomach tanks can be topped off with the succulent sloppy roast-beef po’ boy ($7.99), which won honors at this year's New Orleans Po-Boy Preservation Festival.
With live music every Friday and Saturday, Gattuso's strikes a balance between aural and oral palate pleasing. Its indoor and outdoor seating creates a satisfying, sittable setting in which to kick back after a hard day of training bees to use a typewriter.

About Gattuso's Neighborhood Bar & Restaurant
The chefs at Gattuso's Neighborhood Bar & Restaurant steep their menu of salads, sandwiches, and seafood platters in the New Orleans culinary tradition. Using ingredients such as farm-raised Louisiana catfish, oysters, and fried green tomatoes, they craft creole classics such as jambalaya, red beans and rice, muffaletta sandwiches, and po boys. The roast-beef version of the juicy, baguette-encased sandwich placed first in its category at the 2009 Oak Street Po-Boy Festival.
In the café, servers field guests' requests gargled through mouthfuls of bottled local beer such as Abita Strawberry and imported draft beer such as Stella Artois. Live music plays on Fridays and Saturdays. Catering crews convey platters of sandwiches, cheeses, and spiced seafood to guests at business lunches and birthday parties.
