This week in reviews, Tom Fitzmorris writes that Magazine Street tapas bistro, Salú, is inventive but is "trying too hard to be cool." That happens to the best of us. Salú is the second restaurant opened in the same location by the trio of Tarek Tay, Gabriel Saliba, and Hicham Khodr.
Fitzmorris says the plates are almost too big to be tapas ("you will find it difficult to eat more than three courses") though they still mostly fall under $10 apiece. The sidewalk tables along Magazine St are the most popular and, Fitzmorris writes, when the dining room fills up, the ambient noise can be "uncomfortably loud." Salú got three of five stars from Fitzmorris. [CB]
And in the Gambit, Ian McNulty reviewed Saffron NOLA, an Indian restaurant (and offshoot of the catering company of the same name) on Gretna Blvd in Terrytown that's open one night a week. Saffron NOLA combines local seafood, "a worldly, contemporary cooking style" and the "robustly flavorful fundamentals of Indian cuisine" to create something unique. [Gambit]
