French Quarter go-to Meauxbar serves modern French fare in a black and white space with chandeliers that resemble glowing dandelion blooms. Chef Kristen Essig (formerly of Emeril’s and Bayona) shows her creative chops in dishes like pork belly and scallops with sherry orange gastrique and kimchi vinaigrette. Diners sip riffs on classic cocktails, like the Albino Mule (vodka, house-made limoncello, orange blossom water, ginger), or a glass from their short but thoughtful Old World-centric wine list.
