Chef Chris DeBarr is doing whatever the hell he pleases at the Green Goddess, a funky, off-an-alley ode to his wanderings in New Orleans and beyond. Debarr’s menu is firmly eclectic, reaching from NOLA to the Middle East and Japan, and he and his tattooed, dreadlocked “pirate crew” turn out serious “clandestine” cuisine in unbelievably tight quarters. You might score a seat in Exchange Alley, in the front dining room with a view of the wild open kitchen, or tucked into a back, seemingly hidden enclave. Beyond food (and music, travel, and storytelling), DeBarr has a great passion for natural wines and his list at Green Goddess has rare, exciting, and breathtaking examples of natural winemaking.
