Take a Look Inside Morrow’s, Now Open in the Marigny

New Orleans classics and Korean dishes find a home under one roof

Josh Brasted

Larry Morrow and his mother, Lenora Chong, have thrown open the doors to Morrow’s in the Marigny (2438 St. Claude Ave.) with a menu of New Orleans classics like gumbo, sautéed crab claws, jambalaya, and chargrilled oysters along with some Korean dishes, like bibimbap and lettuce wraps, inspired by Chong’s heritage, according to Helen Freund.

The brunch menu includes many popular items (shrimp and grits, steak and eggs, traditional pancakes) along with crabcake Benedict, cajun catfish Benedict, and sweet potato pancakes.

Chong previously ran Lenora’s Grill in Pontchartrain Park, while Morrow was a local event “curator”, entrepreneur, and author.

The space, designed by Matthew Holdren and Colin Keith, includes cypress wood banquettes and a green wall of grass behind the bar, which may be a first for New Orleans.

Opening hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, plus brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Morrow’s is located on the corner of St. Claude and Music in the Marigny
