Port of Call

838 Esplanade Ave.
New Orleans , LA , United States
(504) 523-0120

Port of Call represents the best of classic "divey" eating in New Orleans. Situated centrally in the French Quarter, this burger joint-steakhouse combo is the perfect place to refuel during a night of Bourbon Street bar-hopping. The ambiance is intentionally no-frills, consisting mostly of low-lighting, scuffed wood bar, and fishing nets that cover the ceiling. This creates an atmosphere somewhat belied by the upscale-meets-potent cocktails, which are served with a flourish in short huricanne glasses. And while the steaks are always reliable, the indisputable stars of the menu are the cheeseburgers, served with onion straws and massive baked potatoes.
