Situated on historic Saint Charles Avenue, the 100-seat Herbsaint is a bistro-style restaurant inside a warehouse district building. Large windows provide views of the streetcars outside, but patio dining is also available. Named James Beard Award winner for Best Chef: South in 2007, chef Donald Link whips up Southern-style dishes that are both French and Italian-inspired. Louisiana shrimp and grits with tasso and okra and slow-cooked lamb neck with butterbeans are among the most acclaimed menu items.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

The flagship of chef Donald Link, Herbsaint does not traffic in tasting menus and inch-thick wine lists. It is, rather, a lovely, internationally influenced bistro that serves rustic gumbos alongside olive oil–seared gnocchi with lemon.

We loved: Bacony pan-roasted chicken with shell beans; smothered pork belly with hopping John and collard greens.
