Where To Dine In New Orleans
Nestled among the live oaks and colorful clapboard houses of mid-city New Orleans and City Park sits Ralph Brennan’s Ralph’s on the Park. At the heart of this vibrant eatery is a menu of globally-inspired interpretations of local cuisine, influenced by the eccentricity, diversity and traditions for which New Orleans is known.
Our History Pre-Katrina: Sebastian Mandina came from Palermo, Italy in 1898, to open the building at 3800 Canal Street as a grocery store. It was a favorite of the Italian immigrants who’d come from New York to prosper off of the farmlands of Southern Louisiana. Sebastian was an entrepreneur who saw the need for a store in the largely residential Mid-City area. His two young sons, Anthony and Frank, grew up in the family business throughout the early 1900’s. The boys would see Mandina’s evolve from a grocery store to a pool-hall that sold sandwiches. It was Anthony and Frank who would turn the pool-hall into today’s Mandina’s Restaurant in 1932. The family continued to live upstairs. Frank lived on one side; Anthony and his wife, a tough redhead named Hilda, lived on the other. Anthony tended bar while Hilda managed the dining room. “Hilda would come out and talk to all the people, be nice with everybody. It just evolved into a neighborhood restaurant,” describes Cindy Mandina, the restaurant’s fourth generation proprietor.
Willie Mae’s Scotch House was established in 1957 as a bar in New Orleans’ Historic Treme neighborhood. After a year, the bar was moved to it’s current location, which consisted of a bar, a barbershop and beauty salon in the front. In the early 1970’s, the beauty salon closed, which brought on the demand for a restaurant from Willie Mae’s bar customers. The aromas of Mississippi and Louisiana cuisine emanating from the kitchen filled the air and brought on constant demand for delicious food. Their demand was met and the rest is history. In 2005, Ms. Willie Mae Seaton was honored with the prestigious James Beard Award for “America’s Classic Restaurant for the Southern Region.”
Marjie’s Grill is a casual eatery located on bustling South Broad Street down the block from the Courthouse. We are inspired by Southeast Asian bar food and the local bounty of the Gulf South. The food combines the funky flavors found on the streets of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand with open fire cooking techniques and local seasonal ingredients sourced from the farms neighboring New Orleans.
Black Lives Matter. Asian Lives Matter. We opened Marjie’s in 2016 with two white operators in a predominately Black and Latino neighborhood cooking Asian influenced cuisine and have consciously worked to engage with our immediate neighbors and with our larger community in the city. Often times we have fallen short. We are currently prioritizing self reflection and constantly challenging ourselves to build a more equitable workplace. This means investing both through actions and financially in the BIPOC community of New Orleans. We are a small, hardworking crew that takes great pride in our sweet Broad Street oasis. We believe in supporting each other, our community and creating a special experience for all that walk through our doors.
