Fast service. Generous portions. – We tried their normal prix fixe menu during lunch. The place wasn't packed and we were seated promptly.
For my starter, I went with the house salad. It had a very tasty and light dressing. My friends chose the seafood gumbo, which they totally loved.
My entree, I chose the classic Jambalaya (without the shrimp). At first taste, it was good but after awhile, the saltiness of the dish was too strong. My friends went with the 8oz steak and was cooked to their liking.
For dessert, I chose the beignets. It was a huge order for one persion. Six beignets with 3 kinds (caramel, honey and chocolate) of dipping sauces. A friend had the pecan pie, I found it to sweet. This meal was worth the $24.95 prix fixe.
No WHO DAT will be necessary. – There was no cajun or creole food to be found in this NOLA wanna-be BAR. I ordered crawfish etuffe, I received a Brown gumbo like substance. They didn't have any real seafood options and I can say for certain that the crawfish tails in the "gumbo" were not from the gulf or anywhere near it. My boyfriend, who is currently sick from the food, had shrimp creole which was overcooked shrimp with a little cocktail sauce. The only redeeming factor: I was a tad bit drunk from a moderately decent hurricane before
I didn't really eat my dinner.
Don't think for a second that this is authentic NOLA cuisine. I would advise that you spend your money elsewhere. Perhaps a trip to visit the bar, and only the bar would be safe. Otherwise not worth it at all and you may end up sick.
Lions, Tigers and Alligators? Oh My. – Have you been to New Orleans? No? Well this is the next best thing to the Big Easy in the heart of Manhattan - Hell's Kitchen. Located in the middle of Restaurant Row, this New Orleans-themed restaurant is a mix between classy after work hangout and elegant dining.
Bourbon has 2 floors with an outdoor patio and a balcony overlooking 46th Street. The middle tables near the bar are great for groups and the balcony upstairs is perfect for dinner for two.
I love their appetizer selection which includes yummy alligator sausage and the usual finger foods. Their dinner selection is fairly unique offering cajun dishes.
The decor of the place is probably the best I've seen, you really think you're in New Orleans (although I've never been, I've seen pictures). With alligators hanging on the wall downstairs near the bathroom and a nicely decorated behind the bar wall, this place will make you feel at home.
My personal favorite: $5 Hurricanes
Great place to eat and drink – My boyfriend loves cajun food and I decided to surprise him by taking him here for his B-Day. The place is awesome. The decor makes you feel like your on the true Bourban St in New Orleans. The food is great, and the drinks were cheap for New York. The best part was their chocolate souffle :) The only minor thing was they are a bit pricy but nothing to outrageous, considering its in New York and on resteraunt row. He loves it, we've been back there twice already.
A wild party – I wasn't sure about this place when it opened on my block but a few visits seemed pretty solid, then last Tuesday I saw balloons and a line outside ????. A girlfriend reminded me it was Fat Tuesday so we decided to check it out. All I can say is what a party. Girls on the bar and Jazz on the balcony with beads everywhere. Can we all say Mardi Gras... When are they going to have the guys on the bar for us to throw beads at ???
Best hurricane & music! – We had a blast just hanging out in the bar on Mardis Gras weekend. They had a great band, good service, good atmosphere, and the best hurricanes that I've ever had. I didn't try the food, but I will definately be back to try it.
MARDI GRAS ON THE WEST SIDE – I come to this place at once a week for a drinks since it opened and I always had good time here. They are having a party here for MARDI GRAS and its going to so good. I cannot wait for it. Bourbon Street are having two celebrations one on Feb. 21st, Saturday, and the other on FAT TUESDAY feb.24th. The Jazz is great here.
The last party that I was there for ws there grand opening in September and that ws great. Plus, they donate the proceeds to New Orleans victims.
Hope to See you there
Mardi Gras in Hell's Kitchen – Sadly my company transfered me for a time to our office in Atlanta but I was back home in Hells Kitchen for our holiday party at Bourbon Street. I see here some early reviews of this new space on Restaurant Row but believe me, this place is the proverbial bomb !. My company had booked the second floor balcony area with private bar, bathroom and outdoor balcony to smoke and watch the street. From the hostesses at the front door to the greeting waitresses with champagne and wine in the lounge (we had a cocktail hour in the rear lounge for an hour before the main event) we were treated like royalty !. The food started with an amazing cocktail hour of horsdorves (I ate alligator for the first time ever) the mains buffet style on the balcony were out of this world, American fare with a solid Creole and Cajun flair we gorged in Shrimp Creole, Blackened Catfish, Cajun Steak and so much more. Dessert and coffee were perfectly timed and the staff were like friendly ninja waiters that moved and served unseen.
At about 9pm a DJ fired up and with Videos on every screen got the crowd going, My tight fisted boss added an extra bar hour afterwards for us to hang out, drink hurricanes and revel in the vibe looking at the packed bar below.
The owner of my company who was trying to be cheap in a tough economy chose this place and saved about 50% on last years bash, which was all fufu and fur coats (ironically and by his admission, this was voted the best company party in the companies 17 year New York history)
I know this neighborhood like the back of my hand and this place is the best new bar restaurant I have seen. If I seem to be going on, it's 'cause it's for real.. Food, service. decor (10+) and athmosphere all amazing.
I know this was a pre planned event but if they deliver consistantly, this place will fly. The company owner (with a few hurricanes inside) recommended getting out of the stock market and investing in Bourbon Street !.
New Hotspot in NYC – This place was great! I was out wit some friends on a tuesday night and had the best time. we sat at the bar and were greeted warmly by two bartender, Adam and Brian, who were super attentive and fun. The food was delicious and the atomosphere was relaxed and fun. With the great service, drinks and food, Me and my friends cant wait to go back for more. Highly recommend this spot. Good Food. Good people. Good Times!
Great Staff, pretty good food, just forget about the name – Ok, it's not Bourbon Street really. They do have iron railings, and some gas lights, but the atmosphere is as Bourbon Street as Times Square. A buncha Preservation Hallists, playing dixieland on clarinet... er... afraid now. How 'bout AC/DC?? BeeGees? At ear-splitting volume? See what I'm talking about? Our waiter was from New Zealand.
On the other hand, the crew, Maitress d', waiter, waitress, entire staff was cool, friendly, and as accommodating as a (insert your own simile here.) The found us a table in a quieter place, served us, took our pictures, were all-round great to us. Not a bad place, if you don't think of the name. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers
