What a wonderful experience of culture, exquisite food, and exceptional service! You feel like you step into an authentic Spanish restaurant. The ceviche was delicious! The paella was better than expected! And the skirt steak was out of this world!! We will return.

About the restaurant
One thirteen restaurant seeks to enliven the senses
through an inspired mid-century modern setting, graceful service and New American cuisine that simply tastes delicious
we sought to keep the unique design of its architect John Desmond
while expanding into a place of relaxation, enjoyment and excitement for each of our guests. Here’s hoping to see you soon!

Blake was a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to chat with while we dined. The Citrus Tuna was phenomenal!!! It’s a MUST. The tuna grade was excellent so much so that for my entree I ordered tuna for my protein bowl The Santorini Redfish was my husband’s choice and he had no regrets with his choice either!!

About the restaurant
Add some real spice to your life! Superior Grill has been rated consistently as one of Louisiana’s best Mexican restaurants since 1983 when our first establishment opened in Shreveport. Our New Orleans location opened in 1997 and has become a landmark in fine quality foods with a festive Mexican atmosphere. Superior’s authentic Tex-Mex food is made from scratch every day with only the freshest ingredients. Our tortillas are hand-rolled with care all day long. For added flavor, all of our meats are cooked over a mesquite grill. We are proud of what we make and how we prepare it. Superior Grill is “the place to be” for happy hour, birthdays, office parties, and large groups. In addition to our festive indoor dining room, we offer a memorable outdoor dining experience on our landscaped patio featuring beautiful flowers and one of the best views of St. Charles Avenue. Superior Grill New Orleans is one of four locations including Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and Birmingham.

Algiers Point
About the restaurant
Established by long-time Algiers’ Point residents, Tonti’s serves fabulous food and cocktails Thursday through Monday, with brunch served on weekends.

Part restaurant, part cocktail bar, part café, Tonti’s combines the elegance of an old world bistro with the casual nature of a neighborhood eatery. The dining room is a light-filled space perfect for a long lunch, a nice sit down dinner, or even a last stop for an after dinner drink.

Our delightful patio is an amazing place to sit and catch up with friends.

With Chef Freddy Augustin creating a delicious and affordable menu coupled with some of the best cocktails in the city there is something for everyone.

I had a very enjoyable experience here. I'm not one who enjoys eating outside unless the temps are perfect but for those who do, there's a nice little area for outdoor seating. The inside has a nice bar and while I was there, a black and white movie was on (no sound). Service was great. I enjoyed it and will go back.

We have been looking forward to having this restaurant open for dinner for quite some time. It is one of the most scenic venues in the city. The menu could include more “dinner” entrees. I’m sure that will come over time.

The young hostess at the front was HORRIBLE, her attitude was unprofessional, and RUDE. She left before we were finished with food. Outside of her everything else was AMAZING!! KJ our waitress was kind, knowledgeable, and sweetheart all around. AND THE FOOD IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE HYPE. Everything was HOT, fresh, and tasty, I would definitely go back.
