Creole / Cajun / Southern
Atchafalaya is a true New Orleans neighborhood eatery where the eclectic yet elegant atmosphere is only outshone by the attentive service and delicious local fare. Nestled under the oaks on the edges of the Irish Channel, Magazine Street, and historic Garden districts, this hidden gem is one the best contemporary Creole dining experiences that one can find in the city. Neighbors, locals, and out of towners alike will become regulars after experiencing the brand of hospitality offered by New Orleans’ only five “A” restaurant. If having standards such as a gumbo du jour, blue crab raviolo, or shrimp & grits, a nightly seafood special, or a filet paired with a selection from the world class wine program you will not be disappointed. The introductions of brunch, live music, cocktails, and now an extensive happy hour continue the newest culinary chapter for a storied local haunt, embracing New Orleans’ culinary culture while placing contemporary spin on traditional New Orleans cuisine.

    Amazing as always. We’ve dined here many times and it is consistently our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Somehow they achieve authentic Southern/ Louisiana food but with an elevated, educated, sophisticated take that only enhances and doesn’t skew or change the authenticity. I could go on for much too long about the service. Each time we visit, we are greeted warmly and welcomed back. The service staff are attentive but not at all stuffy and always friendly. Very professionally run restaurant with great attention to detail. As always, we’ll be back!

    No place is better than Cafe Atchafalaya for a total dining experience. It’s as though they knew before your arrival what would make you feel at home. The hospitality, food, ambiance are classic New Orleans. What a sublime memory from our visit. Ssssh. Don’t tell. It’s already very busy with return guests.
