Overview

Warehouse District gem, Compére Lapin, blends Caribbean, French, Italian and New Orleans cusines. Top Chef-contender Nina Compton’s eclectic cuisine shines in dishes like spiced pig ears with smoked aioli, broiled shrimp with Calabrian chili butter or in curried goat with sweet potato gnocchi and cashews. Lofty, brick walls and a blue-tiled bar provide a mellow backdrop for guests ordering drinks from the notable cocktail program that features reinvented New Orleans' classics and Vietnamese-inspired cocktails.
