What's Cookin' at Muriel's

Contemporary Creole cuisine will never taste better than it does at Muriel’s Jackson Square. Signature favorites include the crawfish and goat cheese crepes, double-cut pork chop and barbecue shrimp. Additionally, there is almost always a wood-grill Gulf fish available from the kitchen. For dessert, Muriel’s offers house-made puddings, creme brulee and chocolate cake.

Muriel’s also features a thoughtfully curated wine list, along with a classic selection of New Orleans-style cocktails, such as the Sazerac, the Hurricane and the Pimm’s Cup.
