10 Ways to Experience Football at Café B
Café b, 2700 Metairie Road, Metairie, 934-4700, cafeb.com
Many of us are happy when football season arrives, but finding the right venue every week to watch the game can sometimes be a challenge. That is why we’re happy to hear that café b in Metairie (a great local restaurant with delicious comfort food) is running a promotion to bole you over. “Thirst & Ten” means that for all Saints and LSU games, there will be 10 sideline snacks for under $10, 10 premium cocktails for $5, $5 wines by the glass and $2 Abita and domestic beers. You can enjoy all of this in front of three big screen TVs in a smoke-free environment. Now all you need is for your team to win!
Still Going Strong at Steak Knife
The Steak Knife Restaurant and Bar, 888 Harrison Ave., 488-8981, SteakKnifeRestaurant.com
Retiring to the bar with a frozen Brandy Alexander after indulging in your all-time favorite classic dishes sounds like a good night out. Fortunately, that’s exactly what’s on offer at The Steak Knife Restaurant in Lakeview. Maybe that’s why the restaurant has become a neighborhood classic itself and celebrated its 40th birthday last December. Still run by the Roth family, Bobby Roth sums it up: “We know what people like and we make it, using only the best and freshest ingredients. There’s no froufrou food here, it looks good but it tastes even better and you won’t go home hungry!”
New Bites at Monkey Hill
Monkey Hill Bar, 6100 Magazine St., 899-4800, MonkeyHillBar.com
The drinks at Monkey Hill are facing stiff competition. Made-from-scratch specialty cocktails, elaborate martinis, tasty margaritas and every other legal libation you can think of, the drinks now have to compete with a strong food offering. Fish tacos, sliders and cheese fries are some of the snacks that will be whipped up at the restaurant, Johnny V’s, next door. Or, if you really need to tuck in, you can choose from the restaurant’s full menu. This might be a good idea if you’ve hit happy hour or nestled into one of the comfy chairs or sofas to watch a big game.
