About Longway Tavern
Longway Tavern believes that New Orleans’ French Quarter is a neighborhood first and foremost. The restaurant and bar is a second place for everyone living in, working in, and frequenting the French Quarter; a casual spot with a breathtaking open-air courtyard where guests can grab a bite and a beer before heading off to other destinations or stay for dinner and savor a nightcap when taking the long way home. Led by Chef Cesar Nunez and Bar Director Liam Deegan, Longway offers an intimate, storied atmosphere tucked away in the midst of New Orleans’ lively French Quarter. The kitchen serves up creative twists on nostalgic tavern fare, such as the wagyu steak sandwich, and English peas with cauliflower cream and country ham, while the bar gives the same treatment to classic French Quarter cocktails, like the Sazerac and Daiquiri. www.longwaytavern.com / @longwaytavern
