Every day during the month of August, we’re highlighting one restaurant from our recent ranking of the 31 Best Restaurants in New Orleans. Today’s restaurant, Parkway Bakery & Tavern, is #20 on our list.
Located in Mid-City New Orleans, this local favorite is renowned for their version of the Southern classic: the po’boy. The Wall Street Journal, Travel and Leisure, and The Food Network are just a few who have recognized the establishment as serving the best po’boy in town, with Travel and Leisure claiming that there’s “nothing better, nowhere else." All of the sandwiches come “dressed” with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayonnaise, with some of the protein choices being fried oysters, charbroiled hamburger, golden fried catfish, and smoked alligator sausage. There are some excellent vegetarian options as well, such as the golden grilled cheese, and the Parkway Caprese, comprised of tomatoes and mozzarella, topped with virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, and salt and pepper.
