At Katie’s Restaurant & Bar, featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives, owner and chef Scot Craig whips up an array of authentic creole cuisine and fusion fare to populate the multifaceted menu. Diners can sink their chompers into the St. Louie sandwich, which drenches fried oysters in provel cheese topped with crisp strips of bacon ($13.95), or sample creole fusion in Katherine’s Cajun Cuban, which nestles tender smoked cochon de lait next to grilled ham on a french-bread bed ($11.95). Along with New Orleans classics such as shrimp po boys ($12.95) and fried green tomato and shrimp remoulade ($12.95), the chefs also fire up traditional Italian- and Cajun-inspired pizzas ($12–$19), which are baked in a Brooklyn-style stone oven and double as gooey manhole covers.
Katie’s Restaurant & Bar
Featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Katie’s Restaurant & Bar’s head chef and native New Orleanian Scot Craig celebrates traditional and modern creole dishes at the nearly 30-year-old establishment. Cochon de lait plays a key role in the cuisine, and for good reason: Chef Craig spends hours rubbing down the pork with dry-spice rub, reading it pig-themed nursery rhymes, and then smoking it to a luscious finish in the small smoker behind the restaurant. You’ll find the tender pork atop a Brooklyn-style stone-baked pizza, which was Lauded by Best of New Orleans as “hard to resist.” It also dons Tabasco mayo in the restaurant's barge-sized po' boys, and weekends finds the meat sitting daintily atop a poached egg and English muffin drenched in hollandaise.
