This is a quaint, neighborhood bar and restaurant that serves Cajun food with an Asian twist. We went three years ago and knew we wanted to return on a trip to New Orleans. We shared the Korean chicken wings, crispy wings with a Korean spice....More

In the Marigny, far outside the French Quarter. Far more quiet, which was nice. Has Indian style flavors, but not totally. Small 6-8 sear bar and friendly, helpful service. Good for vegans as there are very few options in NOLA.

Super cute little space. Seems like a popular local joint. Fantastic food menu and really good wine options available. Closed on Sundays though. NOLA and Indian fusion.

As a visitor to the city, I was interested in the advertised fusion of creole/cajun and Indian cuisine but Silk Road disappointed. The menu is basically a short list of creole/cajun dishes and another list of Indian food with one Thai curry. That is not...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
