When locals crave South American flavors, their first stop is Baru Bistro, the Magazine Street outpost of Colombian-born Chef Edgar Caro. Street food reigns here. Baru’s menu is built off abuela-style cuisine, and its flavors and combinations are refreshing in a market dominated by decidedly non-Latin food. New Orleans is rubbing off on this young chef, too. Gulf shrimp take a dip in the deep fryer before playing dress up with cilantro aïoli, mizuna, and caramelized shallots. And what are churros in New Orleans if not a cross-cultural love letter to the beignet? Caro’s cuisine is a delicious reminder that comfort food often transcends country of origin.
