La Macarena is one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans. Manny, Miss Isabela and the rest of the gang make this a consistantly great place to eat. It is tiny, 6 four top, and 2 two top tables inside, and 2 outdoor tables. This isn't a bad thing though, it allows them to give everyone really great service and very expertly cooked food. There isn't anything I have tried that I haven't liked. From the vegetarian breakfast to the carne asada to the chicken soup (yes chicken soup!!!!) It is obvious in every bite that much fresh local food is used in the preparation of everything. They even make the agua fresca my personal favorite is the blackberry. I regret to say I have never had room to try dessert. So hop the St Charles streetcar up to the riverbed, and it's just a half a block away.
