Café Atchafalaya

901 Louisiana Ave.
New Orleans , LA , United States
(504) 891-9626

Set among trees in the residential Upper Garden District, Atchafalaya is well away from the French Quarter hulabaloo, which kind of makes it a destination restaurant (you'll need a car to get there). Under new ownership, the restaurant now has an haute-traditional menu (perfect fried green tomatoes, pork chops, shrimp and grits) and its servers (once known to be rude at best) are friendly, helpful, and indulgent of large, talkative groups who have trouble deciding what they want for dinner but are quick to order that next bottle of wine.
