Partners Liam Deegan and John Sinclair have created a low key stylish eatery that is perfect for intimate lunches and sultry suppers. Housed in a building from 1794 that conjures up the Quarter's residential pedigree, the Longway was once home to Boho writers Roark and Mary Rose Bradford, who hosted creative types at their place at all hours of the day and night. The owners wanted that kind of place today, and indeed Longway is inviting, with its lovely back courtyard and relaxed tavern vibe. A perfect neighborhood bar that just happens to call the French Quarter its 'hood, this is the spot for creative small plates meant for sharing and smart cocktails. Chef John Sinclair offers creative twists on nostalgic tavern fare. Try the Caesar salad topped with crispy, fried chicken skins and veggie casoulet with field peas, sunchokes, mushrooms and whipped tofu. Happy Hour is a great way to kick off date night, daily from 4-7pm with $5 sidecars, daiquiris, Moscow mules, house wine and $20 bottles of happy hour wines.
