La Boca is bringing the authentic Argentinian flavors to the Big Easy.
La Boca or ‘The Mouth’ is an Argentinian steakhouse that exclusively serves steak as its main entree. Aside from the literal meaning of the name ‘La Boca,’ it also refers to a heavily European influenced neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. La Boca channels its inspiration from this neighborhood.
Inside La Boca, the dim lighting and rustic wood and iron decor create an ambiance fit for a steakhouse. Daniel, the General Manager at La Boca, talked about the design of the interior.
“Almost everything you see here was handmade in New Orleans,” he says. “The beautiful bar you’re sitting at was made handmade by a local.”
And Daniel thinks this sends an immediate message to customers.
“When you walk in, you immediately know what we’re all about,” he says.
“We do have a strong local following. People are always hungry. If you just keep serving good food, they’ll keep coming.”
All of the steaks are served a la carte, so there is no carving at the table. You can choose anything Bone-In Filet Mignon to Organic Hanger Steak. Before your steak arrives, your server will bring a box filled with unique knives and let you “choose your weapon.” The steaks are served with three equally delicious sauces to compliment your preference: a parsley and garlic sauce, horseradish sauce and one with roasted red peppers.
And the sides are big enough to share with a friend. Try the Mashed Potatoes, served in a cast-iron skillet or the perfectly seasoned French Fries “La Boca.”
In an effort to stay authentic, the wine list at La Boca is comprised of all Argentinian wines.
Since opening the Warehouse District location, Daniel says that the locals have embraced La Boca.
