THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Primitivo Restaurant Review

: Primitivo is one of the first full-service, upscale restaurants to make its debut in a part of New Orleans that is slowly reemerging as a commercial and entertainment hub. Owner Adolfo Garcia is no stranger to culinary innovation, having helmed the now-shuttered Rio Mar for decades, and who is currently offering dining at the Canal Place theatres and the popular La Boca steakhouse. Primitivo's dishes are smoky, charred and full-flavored. Chef Nick Martin turns out ember-roasted shrimp ratatouille, a coal-grilled rib-eye, and a five-hour smoked beef selection.
