  • Apolline Restaurant
    Apolline Restaurant puts a modern spin on French-Creole cuisine. What does this mean? It means a starter of Gulf shrimp and stone-ground grits with andouille sausage;or an entree of brined, smoked, then grilled pork chop with a marchand de vin; or a brunch dish like eggs apolline, served atop a belgian waffle with andouille and crawfish. But those aren't the only elements that make this Uptown eatery a happening place to be. Chef Matt Farmer Metairie native Matt Farmer has been cooking since his aunt gifted him a kids' cookbook at the age of 6. This book carried him through high school and college and jump-started his lifelong love of the kitchen. House smoked flavors provide local character and depth to his menu. Farmer's exquisite plates earned him a nod from Eater in 2013 as the city's hottest chef. A Peek Inside Painted white-brick pillars and weathered wood walls juxtaposed with faux venetian plaster finishes create a balance of traditional and contemporary inside this renovated shotgun cottage. A wall of mirrors reflects the light filtering through the floor-to-ceiling windows and the sconces perched on the pillars. According to Food Dat, the decor "achieves a balance of careful, subdued design aesthetic and inviting warmth that inspires guests to feel exhilarated and at ease, all at once." What the Press Says "Apolline is an upscale, high-aiming but still low-key restaurant, a place right in the middle of the Uptown dining scene that still seems like a neighborhood find. ... [The food] is all deftly done." – Gambit "Chef Matthew Farmer's Southern-inflected cooking strikes a balance between a New American bistro and a Southern church social. ... The Uptown crowds have found a new place where they can joyously gather." – The Times-Picayune

  • Bistro Byronz Shreveport
    When Mike Kantrow founded his original sandwich shop in 1979, he thought the name Byron's looked too boring. So, as he explains on his restaurant's website, he scratched the s and added a z to the end, giving birth to both a local legend with the Big Byronz sandwich and a local controversy over how to pronounce "Byronz." "If you want clarification on how to say it," Mike explains, "don't ask me." While regulars may fight over phonetics, few argue over the flavors infused in Bistro Byronz's southern-styled bistro cuisine. Hearty entrees anchor both the lunch and dinner menus, inviting diners to dig into the roasted potatoes that flank a French-cut pork chop marinated in Abita root beer. Comfort dishes soothe the soul, such as tender pot roast that wades in creole gravy and the signature Byronz sandwich with three types of meat, cheeses, dressing, and black olives.
