THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lucky Rooster Restaurant Review

: New Orleans’ Central Business District is rich in restaurants offering a range of cuisines, but finding a tasty Asian-inspired meal can be frustrating. Enter Lucky Rooster, a hip, contemporary dumpling and noodle house that offers clever twists on favorites --- think red ginger shrimp and Korean sticky beef. Chef Neal Swidler honed his craft at such high-profile spots as Emeril's Delmonico and Nola, and here he has teamed with former Herbsaint manager Joe Briand. The menu has a sense of humor. It’s divided into four sections: "Nibble," "Munch," "Crunch" and "Slurp." Under “Slurp” (soups), you’ll find the namesake Lucky Rooster, five-spice chicken, chicken dumpling, teriyaki wings and house udon noodles. Briand, who oversaw the wine program at Herbsaint, had a hand in the beverages at Lucky Rooster, too --- two dozen wines by the glass and specialty drinks such as Juan’s Donkey blending gin and lemon grass ginger syrup. For dessert, share a giant plate-size fortune cookie with fresh cream or a snappy ginger lemon bar.
