Welcome to the Delta Grill, where we're not only known for our down-home comfortable atmosphere, but our delicious food. Our chef, Gregory Tatis, is home grown from Queens and started his illustrious career at Nickelodeon in Astoria. Gregory then proceeded to go south of the Mason-Dixon Line to famous Cajun Chef Paul Prudhomme's kitchen at K-Pauls, where he cooked for over eight years. Whether you're looking for something blackened, barbecued, Creole, or Cajun--look no further. When creating the Delta Grill, owners Tom Burns and Tom Sullivan envisioned a classic Louisiana roadhouse eatery with superior food and a welcoming atmosphere. Burns and Sullivan also own the Streetcar Cafe around the corner at 370 W. 46th St. between 8th and 9th Avenues. Make sure to drop by after work or next time you're in the neighborhood.
The Delta Grill was one of the city's first New Orleans-themed restaurants, and it's still one of the best. Creole aficionados will find inauthenticities, of course, but the food is wholesome and well-seasoned, which is more than a lot of places in New Orleans can say.
Great for brunch!! – We went to The Delta Grill for Sunday brunch and thought it was awesome! Went early - around 12pm - and the place was mostly empty. By 1pm it was packed. Great brunch selections or you can order off the regular menu. We had omelets with fun things like tasso and andoulle sausage, poached eggs over biscuits, and this crazy omelet-in-potato thing - delicious!! The beignets were great too. Live music was nice, not at all loud and intrusive. Definitely recommend it - can't wait to go back and try dinner!
Delicious New Orleans style food in NYC – I've been to Delta Grill multiple times, with different groups of people, and everyone has loved it so far. There is a wide variety of Cajun style food to suit everyone. The bread that comes with dinner is hot and tasty. Service is friendly at the door, bar and table. The fried green tomatoes are my favorite. Frozen drinks are weak, so stick with something else
New Orleans in New York! – My wife and I opted to skip Fat Tuesday at the "Grille" by showing up Sunday evening. We made a great choice in that there was a festive crowd, but ample seating available. I chose to order the Southern fried Catfish on a bed of succotash, smothered in an ettoufe' sauce that pulled it all together. From the first savory mouthfull I felt I was back in the French Quarter! I can honestly say I have never had better Catfish served in all of New Orleans! If you love Cajun-Creole, you must try the Delta grille!
Cajun Fun – My dining partner and I traveled to 9th street and stumbled on this place. From the outside, it didn't look like much, but once we entered, it was like we had entered an established place in New Orleans. Before we ordered, we dined on the corn muffins (which would have been better had they been served warm). I ordered the chicken creole, and my partner ordered from the brunch menu (French Quarter Toast which is essentially a thick french toast). The presentation was very good on both dishes. My creole was very tasty, and my only criticism is that the portion size was pretty small. The French toast was great and on a scale of 1 to 10, it scored an 8 (if you want french toast that scores a 10, go to Suburban House in Baltimore). Just need a Mardi Gras parade to make this more memorable!
Unique experience – I've never been to new orleans but after coming here I want to go. I ordered the crawfish etouffee and it was great. I will definitely go back.
Expensive But Great Cajun – Its good and its Cajun. The prices here can be exorbitant enough to consider purchasing a ticket and flying to New Orleans. The service is spotty at times, but the food makes up for it. Its a place for the Cajun junkies who won't find much Southern loving anywhere else in midtown.
Nice lunch – Had an early lunch there and husband and I both enjoyed our meal. Had the soup of the day (shrimp/corn chowder?) and Po' Boys (shrimp for me, BBQ for him). Very quiet at that time of day (or perhaps because it was raining), waitress was very pleasant. Would definitely go there again.
Slipping... – I am a semi-regular at the Delta Grill, and unfortunately have witnessed the decline in their food. There are still some stalwarts that you can count on, but you have to be careful with what you order. The Muffaletta is a little disappointing, while the Cheese Grits still rock. The Gumbo is great, but the crawfish fizzles. Not sure what the problem is back in the kitchen, but yes I have to admit that its started to drop off. Hope they can get the mojo back.
EXCELLENT – I'm not sure what these other people are talking about...I walked out of the Delta last weekend knowing that the pork chops were the best I'd ever had. Two thick and tender slabs of chop were excellent! That was the second time I'd been there and each time I'd been very satified with my meal. The first time I went, I got the crawfish etouffe...very good.
If you're looking for an excellent, reasonably priced meal...this is it!!!
mmm...spicy! – Went on a friend's recommendation, and I'm so glad I did. It was pretty crowded, but we were seated immediately (2 people, 6:30 pm on a Saturday night). The jambalaya was delicious, and I don't know why some other reviewers are throwing accusations of blandness--it was very spicy, just at the edge of my heat tolerance. The portion was generous, too; I had enough leftovers for a good lunch the next day. The service was a little harried but well within acceptable ranges.
And the key lime pie is to die for.
