Best of New Orleans 2014: Best New Restaurant – Mopho
MoPho's menu, which takes a gourmet approach to traditional Vietnamese dishes, was an immediate hit in its Mid-City neighborhood, and earlier this month the restaurant was nominated as one of Bon Appetit's Best New Restaurants. Chef Michael Gulotta (former chef de cuisine at Restaurant August) has constructed a restaurant that's both a casual drop-in spot and a place for a special meal. Make your own pho (pick a broth and add your own ingredients) or go for favorites like crispy lemon grass chicken wings or fried shrimp spring rolls. (more…)

Not content to riff on standards, a cool new restaurant shows a different perspective on Vietnamese flavors


The New Orleans Advocate by Ian Mcnulty
Sep 11 2014

Before hashtags and “trending now” reports gained such currency, one way to get a read on the next big thing for the food world was to talk with chefs about what they liked to eat on their down time.

It could only be a matter of time before that praise met the plate at their own restaurants. (more…)

Sep 11 2014

If someone were to tell you that a young chef of notable ambition and accomplishment opened a defiantly casual restaurant that testifies to his appreciation for Southeast Asian cuisine, microbrews, weird cocktails and pig flesh, you would be perfectly justified in responding with a yawn. As it happens, I am telling you exactly that — and I still think you should keep reading. (more…)

Best New Restaurants – Mopho – Expanding Vietnamese Cuisine


myNewOrleans.com
Sep 11 2014

Chef Michael Gulotta has a deep appreciation for the flavors of Vietnam. Before he opened MoPho, his inventive Mid-City restaurant, he was best known locally as the executive chef at August, so his decision to serve more casual fare took some people by surprise. MoPho is unpretentious, but the plates bear evidence of Gulotta’s background – the menu includes riffs on traditional recipes that sometimes look odd on paper but which invariably work on the plate.
