a Freret Street restaurant for over a quarter of a century
A DESTINATION ON THE RIVER
The friendly and funky look of a roadside cafe fashioned from a nineteenth centrury pensioner's cottage does not betray how very ambitious the Creole fine dining menu is. When the weather is pleasant, diners opt for patio seating, which offers silhouettes of horseback riders on the levee behind which freighters ply their way up and down the Mississippi
Dinner at Mat & Naddie's combines an ambitious menu featuring fresh, local ingredients combined with a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.
When the sun sets over the river, the lighting gets subdued, and you hear the gentle horns of the freighters slowly making their way up river, the candles on the tables are lit and the mood is set for fine, yet relaxed, dining.
When weather is pleasant, move out to the patio for a drink at the bar or an appetizer.
