Seafood Lasagna with Fresh Saffron Pasta at Iacovone Kitchen


Iacovone Kitchen

Bob Iacovone came to prominence as the executive chef at now-shuttered fine-dining restaurant Cuvee. His new venture, Iacovone Kitchen, is a small takeaway shop offering soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts, freshly made and refrigerated to reheat at home. It’s a great place to grab a quick lunch, or for those of us who may not have time to prepare a top-notch meal at home.  Iacovone Kitchen: 5033 Freret St., 533-9742,Tuesday-Saturday 11-7,




Poke-Chan opened late last year, bringing the Hawaiian raw fish dish to St. Claude avenue. As at Poke Loa, the restaurant that brought the concept here, diners at Poke-Chan start by choosing a base of white or brown rice, salad greens or won ton chips, then one or more proteins, including Japanese-style fried chicken, salmon or vegetarian options such as tofu. Look for specials like Bun Bo Hue, the spicy Vietnamese soup.  Poke-Chan: 2809 St. Claude Ave., 571-5446, Sunday-Thursday 11-10, Friday-Saturday 11-11,



Paloma Cafe

The Bywater space that once housed Booty’s Street Food and Café Henri is now home to Paloma Café, where chefs Danny Alas and Justin Rodriguez serve Latin American-inspired food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Upscale coffee outfit Revelator is behind the restaurant, and the coffee and tea selection is accordingly diverse.  Paloma Café: 800 Louisa St.,304-3062; 8-6 Monday-Thursday (Bar until 9), 8-11 Friday-Saturday, Sunday 9-3,
