THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Garces Restaurant Review: HURRICANE KATRINA: this establishment is currently closed. For a New Orleans Travel Update as well as resources, information and help click here. The presence of a large Cuban-American community in New Orleans has had little impact on the city's dining culture. Fans of Cuban cooking have to settle for a handful of casual places like Garces in this residential neighborhood. Pleasant and practical summarizes the style here. Bright red tablecloths and a colorful mural break the gray expanse of the walls. The menu's strengths lie in the delicately flavored roast pork, satisfying paella of seafood and chorizo, and the pounded, Cuban-style flank steak with fried potatoes. The pressed Cuban sandwiches, especially the pork in a zesty sauce, are fine, the batidos (milk shakes) richly delicious and the authentic Cuban coffee outstanding. Closing time is early, usually around 7 p.m.
