Named for the New Orleans neighborhood that borders the French Quarter, Gentilly Kitchen + Bar adds a luxe Creole flourish to this quiet West Village block. Step past the gleaming white entrance and you’re transported to a refined, relaxed southern parlor dimly lit by tea lights, weathered white brick walls, and black leather banquettes. Vintage streetlamps hang above the bar, where you’ll find five Sazeracs and homemade sodas. Order the Ramos Gin Fizz for a true New Orleans cocktail and a taste of the restaurant’s inventive spirit: The laborious cocktail has tired bartenders since the 1880s, requiring five whole minutes of shaking by hand, but the bartenders here use a makeshift bubble-tea machine to mix up the drink’s creamy egg whites. Arrive on a Sunday night for a family-style supper like fried chicken or gumbo (the main course changes weekly) alongside salty fried green tomatoes, oozing Beemster Gouda mac ’n’ cheese, and steaming collard greens with grilled oysters. Of the Creole-leaning entrées like the crawfish ravioli and the tangy hanger steak, only the barbecue shrimp disappoints — if it’s overcooked, you’ll find it’s nearly impossible to remove meat from the shell without looking like a grade-schooler learning to use silverware. Tuck into the sweet seasonal cobbler or chocolate bread pudding for dessert with the honeyed Chauteau Bouscasse wine.
