Justine -225 Chartres St.

Just a few blocks inside the French Quarter from Canal Street, sits one of New Orleans’ hottest new restaurants. From James Beard award-winning chef, Justin Devillier, Justine serves up classic French cuisine in a lively, sexy setting that makes you want to stay a while.
The menu has offerings such as French Onion Soup, Moules with frites, and Steak au Poivre. And don’t miss the daily specials, like Thursday’s feature: Braised Lamb Shank. But don’t come here just for the food… the atmosphere is worth the visit alone. With hot pink and metallic wallpaper, modern Edison lights and a DJ in the evenings (weekends only), Justine really sets the tone for a great night (or day) in the Big Easy.

GHI favorites: Lobster Tartine, Moules Frites, Octopus Vinaigrette, Petit Filet Au Poivre, and Braised Lamb Shank
