Big Easy Grille
Big Easy Grille in West Midtown is as much of a sports bar as it is a NOLA restaurant. The Saints, LSU, and Tulane flags on the ceiling clue you in that they’re supporting everything Louisiana has to offer, from food to football. The small dining room gives off distinct dive bar vibes with a low ceiling, wood on every surface, dim lighting, and a few booths. There are plenty of N’awlins faves like standard po’boys, a smoky gumbo, and jambalaya that has some seriously tasty sausage and is perfect for the heat-intolerant (we doused it with hot sauce). The fresh beignets were a little too doughy inside, so safe to say it’s no Cafe Du Monde, but for a reliable Crescent City meal, Big Easy Grille is a comfortable choice.
