Stumbling into the little hole in the wall that is the P&G Restaurant and Bar in the Warehouse District of New Orleans, Louisiana was a great idea. This small restaurant has everything you could want in terms of New Orleans staple fare: po boys, creole-spiced seafood, rice & beans, and excellent salads. The woman who takes your order might call you darlin’ or honey, and the chef’s name is “Miss” So-and-So – very authentically southern. While the restaurant might be small, do note the Zagat sign outside; you won’t be the first patron to enjoy these home-cooked meals, but you might be one of the few folks who venture outside of the more popular French Quarter to get some good grub. Grab a chair and a Coke (they do have beer, like everywhere else in New Orleans) and people-watch during the week, as P&G’s is located right off of Baronne Street, where many of the city’s white collar folks work and play. Even something as simple as a shrimp salad will be delectable, with itty-bitty spiced shrimp tossed on a bed of cucumbers, lettuce, and baby tomatoes with the house’s special home-made dressings. So give P&G a try next time you’re in the Big Easy!
