Interested in sampling the newest restaurant and retail additions to New Orleans? From a catfish shack to a pet store, read on for a list of the newest spots to open their doors around town.
Barrows Catfish Restaurant
Wander over to 8300 Earhart Blvd. in Gert Town and you'll find Barrows Catfish Restaurant, a new spot to score fried catfish, potato salad and not much more.
According to the restaurant's website, the place opened under a different name back in 1943 and offered fried catfish as its only entrée and potato salad as its only side. The menu is basically the same today, but now offers french fries as a side plus lemonade, soda and iced tea to help wash it all down.
Amis des Paux
Amis des Paux is a new pet store in West Riverside, located at 4858 Magazine St., that specializes in gourmet pet treats and more.
Cat lovers will find handmade bayou kitty tuna treats and blackened salmon bites, while dog people can stock up on canine king cakes, shrimp gumbones and dog treats made with wholesome ingredients. The business also features artisanal treats like D'at Shrimp & Grits, made from Louisiana shrimp, brown rice flour, flaxseed and parsley; as well as little Mardi Gras-themed mask-shaped dog biscuits and custom birthday cakes for your furry friend.
Three B's Burger & Wine Bar
Three B's Burger & Wine Bar serves up small plates, burgers, sandwiches, sides and libations at 911 Harrison Ave. in Lakeview.
