There might be walk-in fridges at some high-profile New Orleans restaurants with more floor space than the entire dining room at the Green Goddess. But the diminutive French Quarter newcomer just got some plus-sized media love any of its bigger neighbors would envy.
The Green Goddess is featured in the current (September) issue of Gourmet in the magazine's Restaurants Now column, a monthly rundown of new and notables around the country. New Orleans-based freelancer Pableaux Johnson wrote the brief, which you can see here.
Chefs Chris DeBarr and Paul Artigues opened the restaurant in May in the tiny Exchange Alley spot that had previously been home to Jazz Tacos. There are just a few tables inside, and more weather-dependent seating outside in the atmospheric alley.
Johnson describes DeBarr's style as "aggressively eclectic, incorporating exotic ingredients from every conceivable culinary culture into a wide-ranging menu."
