La Boca Restaurant Review

: Chef Adolfo Garcia has made a name for himself in New Orleans with a series of distinctive restaurants citywide. This elegant, white-tablecloth Argentinean steakhouse located in the Warehouse District offers such starters as blood sausage (morcilla), thick slices of grilled provolone sprinkled with oregano, and empanadas stuffed with grilled chicken, corn, mozzarella and olives. Or begin your meal by sharing the “Gaucho Plate,” which includes a taste of the sweetbreads (mollejas) along with beef skewers and empanadas. Certified Angus beef steaks are seasoned only with salt and pepper, and are served with three types of chimichurri sauce. The smartly annotated wine list exclusively features bottles from Italy and Argentina. Nothing complements a steak with chimichurri sauce better than a full-bodied, robust Argentinean Malbec. With almost every bottle available as a half carafe and steaks that are reasonably priced, La Boca is the rare steakhouse that won’t empty your wallet. For dessert, try the coconut-and-amaretto ice cream cake. Great lighting, a crisp, modern interior and consistent food offerings combine to make this a winner.
