New Orleans has a bible's worth of happy hour deals, and trying to navigate them all can be a perpetual chore. Domenica, an Italian-themed restaurant led by star chef John Besh offers undoubtedly one of the city's best deals.
Unlike most happy hours that run Monday-Thursday, Domenica's is seven days a week from 3-6 pm. Where most happy hours cherry-pick the items that will be offered at a discount, Domenica opens up their whole pizza menu for half-priced indulgence. Some of the pizza options are prosciutto, spicy lamb meatball, clam and a drove of other gourmet, handcrafted options. Regularly priced, these are $13.
Pizza, like most food, needs to be washed down properly. Domenica gets this. All wines by the glass, well drinks and beers are sold at half price during happy hour as well.
This isn't bar food we're talking about; this is Italian-style pizza from one of New Orleans' most famed chefs, at half price. It almost seems sinful to be allowed to purchase said food masterpieces at such an affordable cost. John Besh has effectively created his own Groupon on pizza and drinks - no need for a print-out or app - just show up at the times designated above.
