Friday lunch at Maypop, 611 O’Keefe Ave., New Orleans.
Chef Michael Gulotta got my attention last year at MoPho. (He was a 2016 Food & Wine Best New Chef.)
This time it’s his new CBD restaurant, Maypop, named for a flower, that has Southeast Asian flavors, and then some.
Lunch started with an excellent Sazerak de Roi, my new favorite in the search for the best in the city. Maypop is fabulous. Go soon. Lunch or dinner. http://maypoprestaurant.com/
