News From the Kitchen
Piece of Meat, Three B’s Burger, Zocalo
Piece of Meat
The folks behind Bayou Wine Garden and Bayou Beer Garden have a new spot around the corner from both. Piece of Meat is a place to grab a sandwich, fresh sausage or a whole chicken. Leighann Smith and David Jackson, who run the place, are butchers at heart but skilled cooks too. Try the boudin egg rolls and the ever-changing charcuterie plate. Piece of Meat, 3301 Bienville St., 372-2289, Mon., Tues. and Thurs. 11-8, Fri. until 9, and Sat. and Sun. 10-9 (Sat.) and 4 (Sun.), Pieceofmeatbutcher.com.
Three B’s Burger
Three B’s Burger and Wine Bar has taken over the spot occupied by Lakeview Harbor restaurant for more than two decades. Burgers were always a draw at the address, but now there’s an emphasis on wine, including 10 on tap, beer and craft cocktails. It’s also still a family-friendly place, with a dedicated “Little B’s” menu for those 12 and under. Three B’s Burgers and Wine Bar, 911 Harrison Ave., 249-0825, Mon. – Sat. 4-10, Sun. 11-4, Threebs.com.
Zócalo, a new restaurant by Edgar Caro and Antonio Mata, recently opened a few doors down from Brasa, the pair’s Latin steakhouse. The Mexican cuisine on offer at Zócalo is ambitious. An enchilada with duck confit and Oaxacan mole is one option; taco fillings include cauliflower with Veracruz-style salsa macha in addition to pork cooked al pastor, beer-battered fish and grilled skirt steak. Zócalo, 2051 Metairie Rd., Metairie, 252-9327, Tues.-Sat., 5-10, until 9 on Sun. Lunch hours TBA, Zocalonola.com.
