“The food, the staff, the service, all top notch!”
New Orleans dining is a true blending of many cultures. European influences, including Spanish, Italian, and French, are coupled with Caribbean and African heritage contributions. This combination has produced one of America’s greatest indigenous cuisines, Creole.
Criollo, the Spanish word for Creole, is the name chosen for our New Orleans restaurant, representing the cultures that comprise Louisiana cuisine. Criollo’s menu is ingredient-driven and seasonal, featuring the Gulf South region’s bounty of fresh, home-grown products from land and sea. Try creative dishes inspired by culinary traditions and today’s contemporary tastes at Criollo Restaurant, open for:
- Breakfast from 6:30 am – 10:30 am (Daily)
- Lunch from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm (Daily)
- Dinner from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm (Thursday-Monday only)
- Specialty Jazz Brunch from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm (Saturday-Sunday only)
