New Orleans, Louisiana is home to a melting pot of cultures and an eclectic dining scene to match. Its trendy Warehouse District, formerly an industrial area and now home to art galleries and restaurants, is a fantastic example of the city’s culinary roots. From French bistro fare to classic Cajun cooking, check out our guide to the best restaurants in NOLA’s Warehouse District.
Established by executive chef Phillip L. Lopez, one of Eater New Orleans’ Chef’s of the Year, and experienced restaurateur Maximilian G. Ortiz, Root is a celebration of traditional flavors and techniques combined with modern American cuisine. Even before tasting Root’s inspired dishes, walking into the restaurant is a feast for the eyes alone. Exposed redbrick walls are illuminated by beautiful chandeliers suspended from natural wooden beams while gusts are seated on stylish, contemporary chairs. Root’s menu is equally delightful with dishes like black lacquered duck with wild mushrooms, snap beans, rutabaga sardalaise, pickled red pearl onions and pan jus.
