Mat & Naddie’s

This charming, rustic cottage restaurant receives rave reviews for its inventive, contemporary Louisiana cuisine, and stellar patio. The establishment is off the beaten path, where few tourists venture, but is wildly popular amongst locals looking for Creole fine dining.

The cuisine is simultaneously extravagant and accessible, down to earth even. Dishes like the eatery’s pure potato and smoked ricotta agnolotti with seared scallops and parmesan gremolata will make anyone’s mouth water. Ingredients are as fresh and local as possible. Join Mat & Naddie’s staff five nights a week as the sun sets over the river, the lights become more subdued, and the freighters slowly cruise up the river.
