Step through the red doors of Square Root in the Lower Garden District for one of only 16 seats at a metallic, wrap-around bar. The People’s Best New Chef Finalist 2015 in Food + Wine Magazine, chef/owner Philip Lopez serves whimsical, dramatic cuisine unlike any in New Orleans. His ever-changing 15-course tasting menus exhibit molecular gastronomy roots with Southern and Mexican flourishes. Paired with inventive cocktails (note the separate bar with bites available for walk-ins upstairs), expect playful courses like “Southern picnic”, featuring fried chicken cotton candy.
