(504) 378-2840

The Burger: Lüke is an old-timey brasserie owned by chef John Besh, who may cook fancier fare at Restaurant August but knows that a 10-ounce Charolais top round beef patty and house-made onion roll doesn’t need to be gussied up for a lunch date in downtown New Orleans. Well, he does top it with ripe tomatoes, Emmentaler cheese, caramelized onions, and thick slabs of country bacon from Alan Benton’s famed smokehouse in the mountains of Tennessee. But that’s just gracious southern hospitality for you.

Best Sides: Seafood gumbo and a custom-brewed Lüke Alt pilsner.
