Cane & Table Kills It!

0 39

New Orleans has always been a city known for its cocktails, so much so that it is part of our culture.

 

From classic cocktails like Sazerac (which was named The Official Cocktail of New Orleans in 2008) to more contemporary ones like the Hurricane and the Hand Grenade, the fantastic sips are part of our fabric, our being.

So the current trend of craft cocktail bars around the country has taken root here is the city where the cocktail was created and in such phenomenal ways.  The team behind two of those noteworthy establishments, Cure and Bellocq, has opened a new establishment last summer on Decatur Street called Cane & Table.  The name alone is intriguing enough, but this new craft tiki bar with serving Colonial Cuisine has taken the city by storm.

The rustic environment of the venue is the perfect setting for this place, setting the mood of a tropical bar from a bygone era.  They tout an extensive menu of rum libations (as well as many others) and the bar staff is knowledgeable and friendly.  Being a gin fan and loving egg whites mixed in anything, I was drawn to the Two Palms which has Bombay Dry Gin, egg whites coconut water and lime and nutmeg all mixed together to make a light, sipping concoction.

But where Cane & Table surpasses other bar/restaurants is their cuisine which is a combination of small and large plates with a tropical flair.  Hands down my favorite dish and the reason for going to the restaurant is the Crispy Rum Ribs, simply divine.  The Fresh Puffed Prok Skins, Peas n Rice, and Cangrejitos are also worth a try.  Under the sides, the Fried Corn on the Cob and Hoppin’ John are fantastic as stand alones are with one of their large plates.

Cane & Table is a breath of fresh air on this storied street in the French Quarter.  Located at 1113 Decatur Street, Cane & Table is open daily from 5:30 p.m. to midnight.  For more information, go to www.caneandtablenola.com.
