This is Louisiana homestyle haute cuisine comfort cooking at its best. And it's right along the Canal St. Martin, the other waterfront in Paris. Now opened is the dinner-only restaurant that is casual-upscale and every bit as devoted to Louisiana-inspired dishes. Try the Gumbo made with quail or the specialty duck (the best duck in France) served with a grilled, bbq'd, smoked piece of sausage seasoned with tomato confit. And for sure don't even think about not trying their heirloom tomato salad or their peach dessert (which is a siren call for the pastry-chef Emma to come out and serve it to you herself). One of the partners here is a long-time Paris resident and American to boot. Maybe that's why her Jazz Brunch Saturdays are so beguilingly good? Another beacon is their cocktails and the old-world charm wooden balustrade bar, upstairs, at the entrance to the restaurant.
- Waterfront Dining: "The restaurant's owners started a low-key cafe downstairs devoted to favorite Southern (American) dishes, hence called PoBoy, and then continued building their dream upward, literally. And Voila, here is the masterpiece gem, Nola, literally Louisiana along the Canal St. Martin."
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: You sort of wonder why there isn't more Creole and Louisiana-inspired cooking in Paris, once you've eaten here. Well, no matter, now there's Nola.
