Desi Vega's - New Orleans
This is what you call a New Orleans steakhouse. While you'll find classic steakhouse fare on Desi Vega's menu such as Porterhouse for two, New York strip and a petite filet, there's so much color to be found here as far as local flair.
Just take a look at the starters. Who Dat Shrimp consists of bacon- wrapped Gulf shrimp stuffed with crab meat, and served with a sweet Thai chili sauce. Fried green tomatoes are topped with a house-made remoulade dressing. And fried calamari are topped with a house-made Creole marinated olive salad and served with marinara sauce. Those heading to Desi Vega's for lunch may look forward to a meatball Po'Boy and steak sandwich topped with a New Orleans bordelaise sauce.
Guest will find that this isn’t the typical dark-wood décor of a prime steakhouse, despite its being owned by the team behind nearby Mr. John’s Steakhouse, often named among the best steak spots in the city.
