We were in New Orleans last weekend for one of the 2016 regional NFL flag football tournaments. After the long, nine hour drive over from Austin (with stops at Buc-ees of course) we made some time for ourselves. The couple we were with had found Mr. John’s Steakhouse (2111 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA).
I shared a “Who Dat Shrimp” appetizer (Bacon wrapped gulf shrimp stuffed with crabmeat served with a sweet Thai chili sauce and chipotle remoulade) that was very tasty. I followed that with a “Hearts of Lettuce” salad (A crisp wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with grape tomatoes, crispy apple wood bacon and crumbled blue cheese). Anticipating that I would order dessert, I only ordered the “Petite Filet” accompanied by a Baked Potato. As expected I topped it all off with at piece of cheesecake covered with chocolate sauce.
All four of us were very happy with our meals. If you are in the garden district of New Orleans and are looking for a good steak, you won’t be disappointed with Mr. John’s Steakhouse. It was a little on the expensive side (Yelp rakes it in the $31-$60 per person range) but seemed to be well worth it (the Yelp rating was 4.5 out of 5, with a rating of 4.6 out of 5 on OpenTable).
