Oh, Meauxbar. How we love you so.
Roll into this gem on Rampart any day of the week, and you're sure to find anything your foodie heart desires. Fresh, seasonally-inspired fare (yes), elevated bar snacks (check) (2.), craft cocktails (yup yup): our girl crush Kristen Essig (1.) serves it all up with a decidedly unstuffy air.
The first and most notable thing about the atmosphere (7.) at Meauxbar is that for all its chic décor and in-the-know touches, it's comfortable. You'll never feel as though you're crashing a rich guy's dinner. Take a look around, and you'll soon see that folks of all hailings are having a wonderful time: kicking back, laughing, exclaiming over their impeccable dishes. It's the kind of place you love to linger in.
Many times, a trip to Meauxbar might follow or preclude a romp around the French Quarter. Good walking heels from Feet First Shoe Store (5.) are at once graphic, hip, and practical. Keep the cool-girl vibe going with an Ilana Kohn printed linen shift (4.); literally and figuratively, you'll be the chillest girl in the room. To show off your insider-y love for New Orleans' food, and maybe a nod to our amazing designers as well, don a Saint Claude handcasted silver oyster shell (3.) and prepare for the compliments.
