As the only rooftop dining accommodation in Metairie, Louisiana, a suburb outside of New Orleans, Parish Line Bistro is a destination sought by the local foodies.
“It is a really high-energy, community restaurant,” says Nicole Naquin, general manager of Parish Line Bistro.
Opened last August, the New England-inspired bistro features a smaller menu comprised of bold flavors in its spread of shareable appetizers, local seafood, and an extensive selection of wine, beer, and craft cocktails to compliment. “[The menu] is eclectic and features a little bit of everything,” Naquin says.
Menu highlights include smoked salmon, tuna ceviche, clam chowder, a lobster roll, a wagyu beef burger with onions, mushrooms, pickles, cheese, and special sauce; and caviar fries made from Louisiana Cajun caviar, a state delicacy harvested from Choupique fish that are found in the fresh waters of the Atchafalaya Basin.
With the rooftop as the main attraction, it sure does draw the crowd, notes Naquin. And to accommodate for year-round enjoyment, it features shutters that open and close to block out any precipitation.
For events, the front section of the rooftop deck is available for private gatherings of up to 10 people and the roof, as well as the entire restaurant, are available for full buyouts.
