What's Cookin' at NOLA
The menu at NOLA features an abundance of artfully assembled dishes and bold local flavors and spices. Signature favorites include the stuffed chicken wings, the grilled Gulf fish with truffle butter, and the duck confit and fried egg pizza. For dessert, get ready for the “Warm Ooey Gooey Cake,” which translates as moist chocolate cake with marshmallows, toasted coconut and coffee ice cream.
To complement dinner, NOLA offers an array of classic and craft cocktails, a modest wine list and beer by the bottle.
