Roux Public House and Diva Dawg join Juan’s Flying Burrito among the restaurant offerings in the 1900 block of Magazine Street, while Kakkoii Japanese Bistreaux has opened its doors on Maple Street.

Roux Public House serves Cajun and Creole dishes such as BBQ shrimp or pan-fried chicken, and Diva Dawg is a new entry into the gourmet hot dog market, reports Mary-Devon Dupuy of NOLA Defender.

Kakkoii offers a familiar array of Japanese sushi and entrees, “but it also makes room for offbeat numbers like fish tacos with tempura-battered whitefish and pickled cucumbers and ‘monki ribs,’ which are baby back ribs with a sweet Japanese-style barbecue glaze,” writes Ian McNulty of Gambit.

  • That block or two on magazine may be the most eclectic block on the entire street. Great mix of shops, restaurants and other. The only eye sores on the block are Jules market (don’t go in there, ever) and that Chinese market monstrosity and rip off shop (St Andrew and Magazine).
