Heartland is an outdoor restaurant and music venue in Little Haiti. This place kind of feels like a cousin of Lagniappe (even though they’re not related, managerially speaking), though it’s more of a restaurant than a bar. There are a couple dozen tables spread out underneath a massive tree in a big empty lot. Pretty much every seat is facing the stage, where there’s usually a band jamming out. While you watch that band, you can order a bottle of wine, a ribeye, roasted eggplant, or lamb chops. The food isn’t quite the main attraction here, but it’s got a great atmosphere and is a wonderful place to bring a date or a couple of friends who are down to drink some wine and listen to a saxophone.
