The food at Pip’s is pretty good—think racks of lamb, Creole fettuccine, and a veggie pizza that sits proudly on a tall metal stand—but let’s be real. You’re here for jazz. A Mid-City staple since 2010, Pip’s has become a total neighborhood hang—a fun, casual place where you can come on any random Tuesday and be serenaded by the sound of trumpets, bass players, and guitarists with deep, sultry voices. There are friends celebrating birthdays here, older gentlemen dressed in well-tailored suits, and first-timers who’ve just spilled in off the street. Everyone’s just here to have a good time, and reservations are required.

Top Round Roast Beef

Top Round is a kitschy order-at-the-window joint in Mid City that's equal parts fun and stupid.
