On Thursday, August 1, the funky and eclectic Cafe Negril expanded its venue to house Po-Breaux’s, a new food space made to entertain and keep the nerd in you reveling in awe.
As you walk up the luminescent stairway to the second floor of Cafe Negril, you are transported into the late 1980s. From the ceiling to the floor there is glow-in-the-dark artwork by Joshua Wingerter. From the portraits of Princess Leia, Pac Man and Mario to table-top games and arcade cabinets, the atmosphere is encouraging you to let the kid inside you out to play and stay.
Let’s not forget the menu options which are a mix of New Orleans classics with Filipino flair. Choose from starters including Not So Basic Fries that are hand-tossed in fresh garlic and parsley, Fried Pickles with Remoulade sauce and many more. If you’re looking for something a little more hearty you can choose from things like a French Fries Po-Boy, Sweet Heat Chicken, Smothered Catfish, Galaga Sliders and more, including Big Daddy George Gumbo. For those with a sweet tooth, they serve a Filipino dessert made with fried bananas and caramel called turon.
Po-Breaux’s is located at 606 Frenchmen Street in the helm of the jazzy district, where tones ranging from funk to hip hop play over the speakers. Unlike most places on Frenchmen Street, Po-Breaux’s is kid-friendly and brings something new to the city life, while still respecting the integrity and culture of New Orleans.
Whether you are looking for good food, drinks, or just a place to geek out in peace, Po-Breaux’s can fulfill all of your needs.
Po-Breaux’s is open from 6 p.m. until 2-ish a.m. (but closed Tuesday and Wednesday).
