Jewel Of The South
Jewel of the South calls itself a classic New Orleans tavern, but really you can just think of it as a place that puts an equal emphasis on the food and cocktails. And both are extremely quality, if not a little bit over the top. There are multiple cocktails that cost over $25, and you’ll find a lot of caviar on the menu, along with plates of wagyu beef tongue.
We like it best for a sit-down dinner date in the plant-filled courtyard, but it’s just as good for walking in for some drinks and snacks at the bar. The owner and bartender is somewhat of a local legend, and you can often see him behind the bar mixing up cocktails or shooting the sh*t with regulars and tourists.
