THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hummingbird Grill Restaurant Review: Underground isnt exactly the word for a restaurant like the Hummingbird, an adjunct to a frayed-at-the-edges hotel where rooms are payable in advance and the desk clerk doubles as the cashier for the dining room. Not even greasy spoon does it justice. Still, youll occasionally hear a New Orleanian rhapsodize over its pre-dawn breakfasts, BLT or fried-oyster plate. Its been said that one of the countrys most respected restaurant critics wouldnt think of leaving the city without a bagful of the Hummingbirds fried chicken in her carry-on bag. Others are forewarned: This is the underbelly of the citys restaurant culture.
