Village Voice's Description

This Chinatown shop offers a taste of New Orleans in a space barely bigger than a closet. Owner Din Yates, a New Orleans transplant, cooks up beignets every morning, puffy, powdered sugar-dusted little treats available as soon as the restaurant opens at 8am, as is a homemade biscuit sandwich that pairs eggs and Muenster cheese. As the restaurant closes at the early hour of 6pm, the rest of the menu is devoted to lunch, specifically in the form of sandwiches. Po'boys filled with either fried shrimp or fried oysters (or both, if you order a half-and-half), veggie muffalettas and braised short ribs stuffed inside of challah bread are all available with a bag of Louisiana-produced Zapp's Potato Chips. Even the beverages hail from the Crescent City: Big Shot sodas and chicory-blend coffee. The restaurant is small but cute, with white picket fences in front and a large mural of artist Blue Logan's friends painted on the wall.—Keith Wagstaff

Tips from foursquare

  • Anoop R. on 03/20/12

    The buttermilk biscuit with fried chicken, cole slaw, and gravy is the best I've had in New York

  • Village Voice on 12/28/10

    They brought Fried chicken on buttermilk biscuit with gravy and coleslaw, Brasied shortribs on Challah, Seared pork chop on challah, Muffalata and Crispy goat cheese on flauta bread to Choice Eats!

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/12/11

    The oyster po' boy ($8.50) "is fully “dressed,” which on a New Orleans sandwich denotes the addition of lettuce, tomato, mayo & pickles, and, on Orchard St., also calls for Tabasco, ketchup & lemon."

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/12/11

    Try the chicken biscuit ($6.50). It's a sandwich "built for curing a hangover."

  • Gentrifried Chicken on 11/06/11

    "Super affordable ($6.50) and they make the gravy and bread the chicken right in front of you. I swore I could taste a hint of cinnamon in the gravy, I’ll have to confirm on my next visit."
