Mr. John's Steakhouse - New Orleans
Mr. John's Steakhouse owners Desi Vega, Rodney Salvaggio and Paul Varisco boast a combined experience of 50 years in the restaurant biz. Just some of the places where they've worked include iconic New Orleans' eater Commanders' Palace and Emeril Lagasse.
That means, of course, expect exceptional service with a dash of New Orleans sass at this steakhouse featuring classic steakhouse fare. Most seafood is local--from Louisiana jumbo shrimp cocktail to jumbo lump Louisiana crabmeat--and most are dressed up in signature seasonings and Creole-influenced sauces.
Of note are the steaks, which are carefully selected, aged for tenderness, then seared to perfection at 1800° in a Montague broiler. Then they're seasoned with a little salt and pepper, and topped with melted butter and served on a sizzling plate. Entrees range from Gulf fish of the day to shrimp and lobster pasta.
