Luke New Orleans

Happy hour at Luke in the Central Business District was a great way to cap off a day of touring New Orleans during Mardi Gras

After breakfast at Ruby Slipper Cafe and a tour of the Sazerac House, I had a lovely afternoon of walking and photographing New Orleans.

However, after miles of walking, it was time to find a spot for cocktails and food. After a quick search, I landed on Luke New Orleans.

Originally founded by renowned chef John Besh in 2007, Luke New Orleans pays homage to the rich culinary heritage of Alsace-Lorraine, a region known for its hearty fare and robust flavors.

Browsing the menu, it felt like a blend of traditional French fare mixed with local ingredients. Which is a classic fusion of flavors that defines New Orleans’ cuisine.

After enjoying a few LOUISIANA GULF OF MEXICO OYSTERS and a glass of the BELLE ON THE BAYOU (tequila, jalapeño, blueberry, basil), I settled into my happy hour delights.

I continued with the CORNMEAL FRIED GULF OYSTERS (ranch) and HOUSEMADE FRIES (with garlic aioli) – which are a MUST.

I paired this with the ELDERFASHIONED (bourbon, elderflower liqueur, Angostura bitters)

And happily, this did not disappoint.

I finished my happy hour off with the FRENCH 75 (cognac, lemon, champagne).

Truly, dining at Luke New Orleans was a lovely way to cap off the miles I walked with my camera, capturing the vibrant life of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
