Red Gravy is in a new location at 4206 Magazine Street. Dinner menu is inspired by traditional family meals, numerous vacations and wild imagination. Our brunch menu showcases items imported from our respective childhood homes in NJ, NYC and Philly. We're bold and colorful and full of opinions. We shop and source locally for our ingredients. Come in for our lasagna Bolognese, handmade ravioli, arancini, mussels, assorted salumi boards, homemade cannoli, lavender olive oil cake, and so much more. The circus is in town! Life is too short to drink bad wine!

This is such an amazing establishment with wonderful staff. Everything we've ordered has been fabulous. The brunch menu is my favorite, but dinner is outstanding too. The polpetta omelet is my favorite, but you also must try the bacon cinnamon roll, absolutely to die for. You can never go wrong with the homemade meatballs with gravy. My only wish is that I lived closer.

We had a fantastic first visit at Red Gravy. The Enzos was wonderful! We also has the veal Marsala and the Carbonara, literally the best we've ever had in Nola. The owner came out and spoke to us, she was the highlight of our evening. We will definitely be going back!

The restaurant was not "that" busy. It took us 30 minutes to get waters and bread. Our waitress brought 4 thin slices of french bread with a garlic butter. We asked for more--I thought 4 thin slices was pretty stingy considering we just waited 30 minutes for it. She brought 4 more and no butter this time. We were out from the first time. When we got the bill, we were charged 4.50 for the second basket. They should be ashamed to charge for just bread when the service was as bad as it was. The food was very good but the service was SO slow it was ridiculous.

Red Gravy is one of the best meals I’ve ever had in New Orleans! Their meatballs are to die for and HUGE, and we also shared some incredible lasagna and ricotta gnocchi with wild boar ragu. Cozy atmosphere (would be great for a first date or anniversary dinner) and exceptional service. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

Red Gravy
Responded on October 13, 2020

Thank you so much!! Yes, the meatballs are 'a thing', to be sure. It's my grandmother's recipe and Lou hand rolls each one. I'm so happy you enjoyed the gnocchi....that's one of my favorites, too! Thank you for your support!

While the food was good, there were a few problems that made the dinner unpleasant: (1) the AC must have been on MAXIMUM power and we were freezing (2) the wait staff were extremely loud when talking to customers... as though they were hard of hearing, though there were no other sounds (3) It took around 15 minutes just to get our drink order to our table.

Red Gravy
Responded on October 8, 2020

Thank you for coming in. With social distancing guidlines, OpenSafelyLA , and wearing masks, it's sometimes a challenge to keep every person comfortable. We must keep the fans circulating as a covid precaution. There is only one thermostat maintaining the kitchen, bars and both dining areas. It's usually a steady 71 in the dining room and a toasty 95 in the kitchen. The servers are speaking through masks, and sometimes, louder is the way. I apologize for the delay in getting your drinks.

This was our first time at the new location. It isn't as funky and warm inside, but it will get there, I'm sure. Loved the outdoor seating area. The service was very good and the food was excellent, as usual. Our only complaint was that the mussels were too small. They were the size of clams, if that. Otherwise, we have no complaints. Welcome back, Red Gravy!!!

We had such a great dinner at the new space for Red Gravy. We tried several dishes. I recommend the Monkfish the most. It’s delicious. Then the Zeppoles for dessert was such a welcome change. Roseanne ,the Chef/Owner , came out to greet us. She was so gracious, as well as , we enjoyed her conversation. Such a new gem in the Upper Magazine area. You have to try it.

we had a confirmed reservation guaranteed by a credit card and the restaurant was not ready to seat us even though they had an open table that they were obviously saving for a in case a larger party came in.

Red Gravy
Responded on September 17, 2020

I'm not sure how you feel this is the case. All reservations are seated as predetermined by OpenTable during this Covid pandemic. We are not able to switch parties without making sure that other groups, with reservations also, can be accommodated. It is not our practice to save tables for anything other than confirmed reservations. If a guest doesn't care for the assigned tables, as was your case, it can take an extra minute to be sure that future parties are seated safely.

Thank you so much for coming in and understanding about some glitches. The kitchen gets extremely hot and on a 95 degree day I don't know if the AC will be able to keep up. I will speak to the landlord about it. I'm so sorry for any delays from the kitchen. We do make everything to order and frankly, I still find myself looking for where I stocked certain ingredients. I really do hope you come back in. Again, thank you so much!
