For nearly a decade, New Orleans’ Warehouse District has been home to the finest steaks and unrivaled service in the city. Desi Vega, a fine dining veteran, teamed up with childhood friend and renowned chef Merlin “Muggsy” Beals, Jr. and General Manager Chris Siegrist to bring New Orleans the ultimate steakhouse experience. Since day one, the three have utilized their years of industry knowledge to create unforgettable memories On The Avenue.
It all starts with the steaks. Serving only USDA Prime Filets, New York strip steaks, ribeyes, porterhouse steaks, and bone-in filet mignon, there’s simply nothing that compares to a Desi Vega steak. Though less than two percent of the nation’s beef qualifies as USDA prime, Desi Vega is committed to only serving the highest quality steaks in his restaurant. Cuts of beef are carefully selected, wet-aged for tenderness and hand-cut in-house. Steaks are seasoned with salt and pepper and seared at 1800 degrees in a Montague Broiler. After resting, steaks are topped with melted butter, fresh-cut parsley and served on a sizzling plate; because a steak like this needs nothing else!
Beyond steak, the menu offers up fan favorites like the Crystal Hot Sauce Onion Rings, the Crawfish-Andouille Mac & Cheese, and the best appetizer in New Orleans, the Who Dat Shrimp; bacon wrapped Louisiana gulf shrimp stuffed with crab meat served with a sweet Thai chili sauce and finished with chipotle remoulade. For those in the know, the USDA Prime meatball is one of the city’s best bites. Chef Muggsy Beals grinds the prime beef, uses Desi’s mom’s meatball and gravy recipes, and serves it with fresh garlic bread to get locals and VIP’s alike started on a memorable dining experience.
“Dining here isn’t just going out to dinner. It’s an experience,” says Desi Vega.
While the food at Desi Vega’s Steakhouse is phenomenal, the service is the icing on the cake. Desi Vega’s attention to detail and undying drive to be the best in the business has General Manager Chris Siegrist and his staff dedicated to making each and every guest experience a memorable one. The finest steaks with the most personable service makes Dining On The Avenue at Desi Vega’s Steakhouse a must for food lovers in New Orleans.
