This week Sarah Baird reviews the Riverbend's quick and casual Italian deli Cibo, where sandwiches are the name of the game: "The roast pork sandwich is one of the best, with gooey, briny caciocavallo cheese fondue brushed on a sub roll that is stuffed with feathery slow-roasted pork and sauteed broccoli rabe." Cibo also does red gravy style entrees, meatballs the size of golf balls, and fresh cannoli. [Gambit]

Ian McNulty takes a trip to tiki wonderland Beachbum Berry's Latitude 29 in the French Quarter this week. The drinks are "potent and fun" and the bartender's know their history, using happy hour to present "new iterations" of tiki. While the meaty "Asian-inflected" menu does have some great surprises, McNulty finds the shortage of seafood to be "disappointing" and not living up to chef Chris Shortall's creative potential. Overall, "it's hard to keep a straight face" when communal drinks and plastic monkeys are involved. [Advocate]

Tom Fitzmorris heads to the Riverbend's fine dining stunner Carrollton Market this week (alas, the STAR rating is missing from the review): "On a first visit—and perhaps all subsequent—the food bar is the place to be" with nine stools offering a view of chef Jason Goodenough and his team in action. T-Fitz suggests forgoing the menu and waiting "until they cook something that looks good, then point your finger at it" and "ask the cooks questions about it all," no matter if they're "taxed to the max." Essential dishes include veal sweetbreads and duck confit. +2 hipness points because "this place is not fooling around." [CityBusiness, sub req]
