An international pair (Francisco an Argentine beer maker/sommelier in training, Liza a New Orleans native chef) open their home doors every weekend providing the city with a stylish four course dinner + wine pairings specializing in gumbo, seafood, spice and their famous dark chocolate chicory pecan pie. In July 2014 they will be opening NOLA gastropub in Palermo which focuses on Argentine craft beer, wine and Cajun food. Expect a daily hour from 4-8pm, Southern fried chicken, Sunday brunch and a laid back atmosphere. NOLA gastropub is closed on Tuesdays and doesn't take reservations.

If you are just craving a little bit of the US flavors, NOLA is the place for you. There is not much on the menu but what there is just hits the spot. Not only will you get food that takes you to New Orleans for just a bit, the atmosphere, music and wonderful friendly owners will make you feel... More

Came here based on a blog recommendation by pickupthefork.com. Service was great, fried chicken was delicious and the beer selection was solid. Nothing fancy and small menu but definitely a great find!

Great fried chicken, great chef & great beer ! We were there the 1st week that they opened the new place and it was really busy. There is an area to congregate around the bar & there are a few tables upfront if you're lucky enough to snag one of them. Great food, good prices & a unique place in... More

BA was missing something like this! Now open doors, if you are looking for some good beer and fried chicken this is the place! The gastropub scene in BA has been growing and this is one of my favorites! Good price + Quality! TRY THE CHICKEN SANDWICH

My friends and I enjoyed the overall experience and would happily go back again. MY apologies for the late review. I don't tend to review things often but I do remember this... More

Nola is a "closed restaurant" which seems to be very fashionable these days in Argentina. Basically, someone's private residence is open for dinner to a limited number of people. Chef Liz & sommelier Francisco make sure you have a lovely time, describing each course & its accompanying wine & giving you a flavour of the reasoning behind the dishes. We... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. They were very willing to accomodate some special dietary restrictions, as well. Every course was fantastic and the wine pairings were carefully selected. Pork shoulder with grits was delightful. We would recommend this place to anyone.

What a wonderful dining experience at NOLA. Chef Liza Puglia and her craft beer making, budding sommelier, Argentine boyfriend Francisco have created the perfect blend of food, wine and atmosphere. As each course is brought out Liz explains her inspiration behind the dish as well as the flavors we can expect to taste. Francisco then explains how the selected wine... More

We went to NOLA for beer night. It was a fun and lively atmosphere with communal tables. The fried chicken was amazing- super juicy and crunchy. I'm still dreaming about it.The potatoes & biscuit it came with were good, but not great, and same for the dessert. We would have liked an appetizer as well. The beers were all really... More

I have been to a regular dinner night and the beer night. Both were great. The food was all very good and the service was nice. It is a pretty fun atmosphere. There have a large communal table and some other small / medium sized tables throughout, which seem to always be filled. Its also a fun way to meet... More
