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, MiLa, is #24 on our list.

Located in the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel, MiLa chefs Slade Rushing and Allison Vines-Rushing heavily emphasize the produce and foodstuffs they source from regional farms, marrying traditional Southern classics with fresh and unorthodox ingredients. Their menu focuses on clarity and refinement, with the goal of creating dishes that allow the flavors of these natural ingredients to shine, such as squash blossom tempura with a blue crab and crème fraiche filling under tomato vinaigrette, and Vadouvan spiced monkfish served with a cassoulet of okra, tomato, and fingerling potato.
