(504) 224-2633
Hours: Mon-Fri 11:30am-2:30pm

Chef Susan Spicer’s newest restaurant, Mondo, seems light years away from her storied French Quarter restaurant, Bayona. Set in a strip mall next to a sneaker store and a snow cone outlet, Mondo’s location is closer to Spicer’s heart than an out-of-towner might guess. Mondo is Spicer’s very own neighborhood restaurant, and one of the first chef-driven eateries in Lakeview neighborhood. Chef Cindy Crosbie runs the kitchen here, cooking Spicer’s signature cuisine that nods to every nook and cranny of the globe. Fit for locals, the space is comfortable and generous with a bar for after work-wine and cocktails, and Crosbie’s menu is built to please food lovers and picky children alike. There’s mac and cheese, pizzas, braised duck, and ceviche. If you’re in the mood for comfort or excitement, there’s plenty to go around.
