Zasu is a dream a long time in the making for James Beard Award winning Chef Sue Zemanick. The name Zasu is derived from Zasa, which means “once again” in Slovak, inspired by Sue’s Slovak heritage and childhood memories of family bonding in the kitchen. Located in the New Orleans neighborhood of Mid-City, Zasu’s culinary goal is to explore new ways to inspire traditional favorites by allowing fresh ingredients to speak for themselves. Here, you will find a mix of local and non-native ingredients, creating a unique dining experience that is clean and light, yet rich in experience.

    Excellent, creative cuisine. The pasta appetizer was amazing. Loved the beet salad and pierogis. Husband’s sea bass was perfectly prepared. One of the best meals we’ve enjoyed in a long time.

    It was my wife’s 50th and I had contacted the restaurant for the quietest table beforehand. I had to ask for a table outside after being sat, which they provided. The whole dinner and experience was fine, food was better than average but not what we expected for a James beard chef. There was no recollection of the wife’s birthday by the staff. It felt like a regular dinner out, nothing special.

    Started w 5 apps - special tomato soup w lump crabmeat- gem lettuce- crispy greens- shiishito peppers and tuna crudo- all were full of flavor, perfectly prepared and delicious. Entrees were halibut, short ribs and salmon- again they were perfect. It might help the noise and ambience of there were table cloths on tables.

    I have dined at Zasu now twice, last evening most recently. Zasu is seemingly effortless perfection. Everyone is on point, and every dish that comes out of the kitchen over-delivers. It is everything you want in fine dining, intelligence, warmth and impeccable service. Kudos to Chef and staff. It is a new favorite, and I'll be back again soon.

    Came here on a double date while in New Orleans for a family wedding. We loved everything about our experience. The menu was unique and the service was exceptional. The walls are a beautiful glossy jade and the ambience was great. We ordered the octopus and tuna crisp appetizers (both wonderful), soup of the day (sweet potato with crab garnish) and little gem salad (with pickled peaches!). For entree we got salmon and the beef. We were full by the time dessert came around so skipped but did have two cocktails each which more than made up for it. Would definitely eat here again! We left satisfied and happy! Thanks Zasu for a wonderful time!

    The chef has outdone herself. I'm trying to decide if this is my new #1 favorite local restaurant, and it is, at the very least, in the top 5. The cocktails are well done. The entrees and desserts were simple yet complex. I can taste every flavor, individually and also in complement to the whole. The staff's attention to us was just right. Chef Zemanick: My hat is off to you. I see your vision and your own signature in the restaurant. Perfection.
