METAIRIE, LA - The Latin American population around Louisiana has been on a steady rise, especially during the latter part of the 20th century. People who came and settle eventually added more mix and flavor to the Greater New Orleans food scene.
From Peru's signature dish, ceviche, Dominican Republic's Mangu, to Brazilian and Colombian steakhouses, those restaurants brought a much different taste and flavor to the plate. Here are Latin American restaurants around Metairie:
1. Brasa Churrasqueria: Located at 2037 Metairie Rd, this restaurant is an idea from Colombian-born chef Edgar Caro and co-owner Antonio Mata to bring colorful dining to Metairie.
