Booty's Street Food Restaurant Review: Booty’s can rightfully claim the distinction of being the only restaurant of its kind in New Orleans. The food is somewhat exotic, but approachable, and mirrors the sort of fare one might buy from a street vendor or a food stall in locales as remote as Korea, Nigeria or Nicaragua. Everything is served to be eaten with your hands, or from a cone or on a stick. That means El Salvadoran pupusas share menu space with Argentinean empanadas, Korean dumplings, and even Indian vegetable skewers. Communal seating promotes food sharing and camaraderie while enjoying a selection from several wines by the glass, and a full line of craft cocktails. Try the “Bywater Bomber” made with rum, pineapple, orange juice, bitters and a secret ingredient: rose water. For dessert, indulge in Booty’s house-made ice creams. The interior is rustic and eclectic, with two bathrooms that double as exhibition space for rotating local artists.
