Cowbell Restaurant Review

: In New Orleans, old deserted gas stations don’t die --- they are magically transformed into hip, neighborhood restaurants. Cowbell chef Brack May’s regional American cooking is served up in a casual, brightly decorated space; we like the bell jar chandelier and the marshmallow tin lamps. Straightforward dishes include Gulf shrimp quesadillas, grilled cheese with a mug of soup, a barbecued rib-eye with mac 'n' cheese, and fish tacos with black beans. May offers rotating specials, such as a chicken-fried oyster salad, or a roasted vegetable tart with fresh herbs. For dessert, there’s the “Chocolate City,” a flourless chocolate cake, and apple pie that get most of the buzz. This is not the place to look for fine wines, but a cold beer or a stiff Bloody Mary are yours for the asking. Servers could not be friendlier.
