Avo, an intimate neighborhood gem in Uptown, is helmed by chef/owner Nick Lama, who crafts seasonal Italian fare showcasing his Sicilian and native New Orleanian roots. Set to romantic chandelier lighting and black-and-white family photos lining the wall, diners feast on dishes like lasagna with short rib ragu or roasted pork shank with herb spaetzle. The petite bar and the covered courtyard provide ample space for diners to linger over glasses of wine and specialty cocktails.
