Dunbar's Restaurant Review

: “Soul food” is a label Dunbar’s wears proudly in Uptown New Orleans. Its inexpensive food and warm hospitality earned this small restaurant a devoted following across a wide swath of the city. Police officers to university professors --- all seemed to show up at its dining room for fried chicken, stuffed bell peppers, greens and sweet potatoes. After Katrina did its damage, nearby Loyola University offered proprietor Celestine Dunbar a spot in its law school’s cafeteria. Loyola can now boast the unique honor of having a place that serves pork chops, chicken fried to-order and gumbo loaded with crabs and andouille sausage. (Note: Call ahead for curbside delivery.)
