SoBou

One of the most important restaurants of 2013 by Zagat Magazine!
The Commander's Family of Restaurants returns to the French Quarter, where the family business began in the 1950's, with our Spirited Restaurant - SoBou. We're South of Bourbon (ok - it's really southeast), in the land of civilized drinking and worlds away from the oversized beers and bad frozen drinks. Our modern Creole saloon is a Louisiana-centric and street food inspired restaurant with a beverage focus.

"This place is amazing! It's such a cool mashup of tapas and New Orleans cuisine. Their use of foie gras on their menu is not only unique, but absolutely delicious! You must get the foie gras burger with the foie gras root beer float as well as the sweet potato beignets! Other notable qualities were amazing service, a cool ambience, competitive prices, and a fantastic wine selection. You HAVE to go here next time you're in New Orleans!"

"Fantastic, until the server brought the bill to the table and insisted that restaurant policy was to complete the credit card(s) transaction(s) at the table.
T-A-C-K-Y!
This practice impacted our overall excitement about the experience.
Made it touristy, unappealing, at the end.
Otherwise, a good time was had by all!

"First, I was extremely impressed with the service. I have been here many times, and this one stood out because they were confronted with a difficult situation and responded in an extremely professional way. A nearby table was extremely loud even when we arrived. They offered to re-seat us in the other room as soon as a table opened up in that other room. Next, the loud table got worse and truely disruptive to everyone around them. They asked them to leave very discretely; however, the table did not want to leave discretely so the management had security escort them out. This took all took place quickly and I could not have been happier with the following meal.
We ate 2/3 the menu and everything was cooked extremely well (including my Lamb!). I would recommend everything on the menu and look forward to returning."

"Plenty of choices in New Orleans can cause one to get caught up in standard tourist fare with high prices. Happily, this place avoids that distinction. We enjoyed the service and food. Our only critique is the rather repetitive nature of the decor which lacks imagination. Rows and rows of sawed off glass bottles fill the rooms."

"Very creative cuisine. Traditional Louisiana flavors are revisited, combined and presented in unexpected, captivating new ways. The final outcome is often delicious. One of the few places in the whole U.S. where we were surprised by the quality and originality of the food. The restaurant is nice, and the service is attentive and personable. Good wines not outrageously overpriced. Would go back immediately."

"We took a diversion to New Orleans as a diversion. We did a quick tour of the French quarter and wanted to have a nice meal representative of the local flair. We had several small plates and everything was fantastic. The ambiance was casual but smart. I would highly recommend if you want an alternstive to the better known options."

"SoBou, short for "South of Bourbon," makes you feel like you are on the inside of a cocktail: the rooms are rimmed with hundreds of empty, lighted pharmacy bottles, an allusion to the origin of the cocktail as "medicinal." Everyone's making creative cocktails these days, but SoBou is among the best: the Sazerac is not to be missed. But it's not all about the cocktails: SoBou features several sizes and types of plates, a cross between tapas and street food: "Snacky Things" (like our favorite, tiny yellowfin tuna cones with pineapple ceviche and avocado-basil sorbet -- just try some!), "Small Bites" (like the crispy oyster and Louisiana caviar taco), and regular servings or "Big Bites," with "Family Style" specials for the whole table. And there are also some intriguing "Sweets" to finish off the meal. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. Wait service is pleasant and knowledgeable."

"We have been to SoBou several times and was greatly disappointed in the quality of food and the slow service. We were there for nearly two hours. I might think again before going there."
