Salu Restaurant Review

: Salú occupies the site of New Orleans’ first wine bar and has brought the space into the twenty-first century. More than 100 wines by the bottle and 30 by the glass are on offer. Among the small plates, the standouts are clearly the lamb chop lollipops, bacon-wrapped prawns and seared jumbo scallops with spicy pepper relish. Those with heartier appetites might opt for an entrée of braised pork shoulder or a generous portion of seafood paella. Speaking of paella, every Thursday Salú features Paella Night with live music. If you order the house signature paella (a mixed seafood selection), you get a free bottle of wine. Salú's rich colors, eclectic art and a large, hand-painted skylight by local artist E. Lee Jahncke are design features. The three-hour happy hour kicks off at 4 p.m. weekdays, making Salú a good after-work spot. In the evenings, there’s a contemporary hip vibe, soft lighting and giant windows overlooking busy Magazine Street. In balmy weather, the best seat is at one of the outdoor tables.
