Ask a New Orleans bartender where he or she goes to have a drink, and two names come out above the rest: Erin Rose, a late-night spot off Bourbon, and Sylvain. The cocktails here are complex and the bartenders knowledgeable. I was offered a taste of the rhum agricole that formed the base of one of my drinks to make sure I'd like it. Though this spot is just off Jackson Square, I must have walked by it dozens of times. Only when I went looking for it did I finally find it, and it was worth it.Recommended for:

Dim lights, a lively atmosphere, an inspired menu, and tattoo'd bartenders that make fabulous cocktails result in a memorable dining experience amidst a haze of food and drinks in the French Quarter. The restaurant, in a historic building of New Orleans, is a little segregated from the more densely restaurant-sprinkled areas of Nola. A server might recommend a wine that's simply ok, but that pales in comparison to the ease with which one befriends locals here and, more importantly, the tasty menu. The food offerings are a mix of traditional and experimental, comfort and sophistication. Sounds like an odd sort of menu, right? The eccentricity of it lends to the charm of the place, and you can bet that nearly everything will be a pleasant surprise. Try the charcuterie, duck confit, and pork shoulder. The doors are thrown open, so there's a cool breeze whether you sit indoors or by the tree-lined tables out back.
