THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mandich's 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 operating schedule is quirky, the neighborhood is blue-collar and the décor strictly make-do, but the food is terrific at Mandich's, a Creole diamond-in-the-rough with a busy working-class bar. Retro down-home cooking draws the faithful to feast on one of the best turtle soups in town, scrumptious red-bean soup, fried catfish with a ladling of crawfish sauce, fork-tender pork loin in onion gravy, breaded veal (or panéed, as it's called in New Orleans), and fabulous po' boy sandwiches of fried shrimp or oysters. Crab meat glories in a spicy bisque and gratinéed in a small casserole with cream and cheese. Don't miss the Boston potatoes, a garlicky, crisp-edged cake of thin potato slices, or the first-rate bread pudding, Mississippi mud pie and cheesecake. At the tables near yours might be some policemen, a debutante and her beau and a couple of the few tourists who find their way to this laid-back and down-to-earth eatery.
