El Gato Negro Restaurant Review

: Housed in a small, nondescript building, El Gato Negro’s second outpost in Lakeview suffers from a lack of décor and poor acoustics. Nonetheless, the food is comparable to that served at the original French Quarter location. Its reputation derives from the well-prepared Mexican cuisine and unique margaritas --- look for such originals as carrot, pineapple with cilantro and lime, or mango and mint varieties. We recommend the pulled pork tamales, while the center-cut pork chop with creamy garlic, mushroom and chorizo sauce could easily become a house signature dish --- the same for the cold water lobster claw fajitas with poblanos. Such basics as tacos, burritos, enchiladas and quesadillas are also available. For dessert look no further than the tres leches cake. Also located at 81 French Market Pl., 504-525-9752.
