N7 Is The Ninth Ward's Best Kept Secret

Now open for dinner Monday to Saturday.

The Times Pic's Todd Price lets the cat out of the bag this week, the cat that likes extremely fancy European canned seafood. Yes, captivating new bar and eatery N7—"named for the highway that carries Parisians south for summer holidays"— is now open at 1117 Montegut off of St. Claude Ave. A short menu specializes in hard to find canned seafood, including "spiced calamari, mussels in vinegary escabeche marinade and small smoked sardines" and French cuisine, along with a solid line up of natural wine, beer and sake.

While Price won't divulge the owners, all signs potentially point to the team behind Frenchmen fave Yuki Izakaya, as previously reported by Eater back in 2014, but this has not been confirmed at this time.
