Meauxbar is located on the very edge of the Quarter and it’s more likely filled with locals from the neighborhood than it is visitors in town for a convention. They serve a mix of French dishes, like chicken liver pâté and hanger steak au poivre, along with non-French dishes, like gnocchi and yak-a-mein, a local noodle dish topped with stewed beef and eggs. It’s a great option for when you want to split a few plates, drink some interesting cocktails, and get some recommendations from a couple who came down for Mardi Gras in the 70s and never left. In case you can’t get enough of Meauxbar, they also serve brunch Friday through Sunday.
