SoBou, our “spirited” restaurant South of Bourbon
SoBou, our “spirited” restaurant South of Bourbon, is the latest culinary creation from The Commander’s Family of Restaurants located at W French Quarter. SoBou presents a cutting-edge cocktail program led by celebrated Bar Chef Lu Brow of The Swizzle Stick Bar and in-house Bar Chef Abigail Gullo and a delectable selection of Louisiana street food inspired small plates created by Executive Chef Juan Carlos Gonzalez and Consulting Chef Tory McPhail in a Modern Creole Saloon.
Whether it is a custom-made concoction or a classic Sazerac, the emphasis for the cocktail program will remain on craftsmanship inspired by a reverence for well-made cocktails. A few of SoBou’s libations include The Charbonneau Way – named for the road where Gullo’s family makes their own maple syrup—and the Jean Lafitte, named after the famous New Orleans pirate/patriot. Under the guidance of James Beard nominated Chef McPhail, Chef Gonzalez created a colorful Creole menu that features Louisiana signatures such as a Po-Boy re-imagined as Duck Debris & Buttermilk Beignets with chicory coffee ganache. Island influences from Gonzalez’s Puerto Rican heritage shine through in Shrimp and Tasso Pinchos with grilled pineapple and spicy pepper jelly.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, SoBou offers guests an exceptional dining experience including self-serve wine and beer machines, an enchanting courtyard, private dining spaces and a special Bar Chef’s Table.
