K Paul Louisiana Kitchen in New Orleans

K Paul Louisiana Kitchen
416 Chartres Street
New Orleans, LA

Darn it! Another tourist trap! So this restaurant is pretty much in the heart of new Orleans. Thankfully I walked but it is so hot out! This place has been on my lost for a while and fortunately I was able to come today.

So there is no sign to indicate that you should go to the bar and place your order…. Once you’ve done that, you take a seat and wait for a server w your order to shout your name.
Not too many tables for small groups! Lots of big tables though.

I was having trouble deciding so the guy at the counter said the beef short ribs was the best. So I had the braised beef short ribs which are seasoned, seared and smothered with bacon, onion, bell peppers, celery, garlic, carrots, fresh corn off the fob and beef stock. It comes with fries w garlic olive oil and a side which I chose cheesy grits. Oh my gosh! The meat was all fat! How disappointing for such a reputable establishment. Loosen the purse strings and buy a better cut of meat!

If it werent for the cheesy grits and few french fries, i wouldve left hungry. Even the cornbread was dry!

A new Orleans local had suggested this place to me but I won’t be coming back any time soon (I know restaurants don’t bring their A game to lunch but this low standard was ridiculous!) I hate it when servers only suggest the most expensive item on the menu and not what is actually good.

My other negative thing was that for a can of soda it was $2 but I guess I should take into consideration that I am in the quarter.

I'm a food aficionado with an interest in photography. Most of my restaurants will be in New Orleans as I will be here over the next few years. Every now and then you will see a post from Boston or Philadelphia too!
