NOSH, which stands for New Orleans Social House, replaces Tommy's Wine Bar at the corner of Julia and Tchoupitoulas streets. The restaurant and lounge will host live music every night.
Chef Michael Farrell, who helmed the kitchen at the now-shuttered Le Meritage, created the menu of small plates and snacks. It includes fingerling potato chips with shallot cream dip, charcuterie plates, shrimp spring rolls with charred tomato chili dip, bison sliders with cheddar and caramelized onions on brioche rolls and lobster tacos with avocado and corn salsa. A selection of flatbreads features a wild mushroom version topped with bacon, onions and Gorgonzola and one topped with pesto, marinated tomatoes, arugula and Parmesan. The raw seafood bar has Gulf oysters, salmon carpaccio, hamachi tiradito, ahi poke, ceviche and grilled octopus carpaccio.
The bar offers creative and classic cocktails, including a pecan Old Fashioned made with Buffalo Trace bourbon, bitters and cherry, and the Warehouse Cooler, combining Grey Goose Citron, sour mix, agave and berries.
NOSH is open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
