Michael Gulotta is amazing and very creative - treat yourself to dinner at Maypop and you won't be sorry. His pastas, salads, desserts are all unique but so delicious. I have brought out of town clients here many times and it is always amazing

Very nice and friendly and young staff. Modern decor which is welcoming. The menu is limited to a few appetizers, noodles and entrees. The oyster appetizer is expensive at $15 for 6 small fried oysters. There just fried oysters with cheese on them and they...weren’t fried that great. The gumbo was hardy, unique and tasty. A nice surprise. The grilled gulf fish with pumpkin and beans was ok. Nothing that I’d get again. I didn’t expect tuna to be served when it was labeled “gulf fish”. You’d think if it was tuna they’d say “tuna”. I’ve had much better tuna every where else I’ve gotten it. The fresh pasta with shrimp was ok. Maybe a bit too much shrimp flavor on the pasta. The dessert menu was not interesting. It’s a nice place, but I wouldn’t go back and I wouldn’t recommend it. There are too many other places that deserve a try for the same money or less.More

One of NOLA’s top 10 restaurants in 2019. I visited Maypop for lunch with a co-worker. The Maypop is a restaurant is located in the CBD and offers contemporary Southern-Asian fusion cuisines from $10 to $35 (appetizers, entrees, lunch, and dinner). As you step into...the restaurant, you feel welcomed by plants suspended overhead and every table has views of downtown. The waitstaff is helpful, grounded, and approachable. The menu offers a lot of Asian cuisines and the flavors are big and complex such as Braised Lamb with Roti Bread or Wok Fried Egg Noodle with Jumbo Shrimp. The lamb has harissa spice and coconut milk. The noodles had turmeric curry. You have to try the Sazerac Du Roi signature cocktail. Because of the brilliant atmosphere and delicious food, I’d visit Maypop again and you can go with your family, friends or whosoever you wish to.More

If you are adventurous with food, Maypop is the restaurant for you. A twist to Creole food with some Asian flavors. I tried rabbit for the first time and it was delicious and interesting.

Went for lunch and loved the place and the food. The service was excellent. I recommend having the bread service to start. Freshly baked with special jelly. We had the crawfish étouffe to share and the server split it for us without our asking. Then...we had drumfish in a curry. Use the bread to soak up the sauce. We will return for dinner.More

We arrived at 6pm for our reservation for dinner for four people. We had tickets at the theater across the street for a show starting at 8pm, and we informed our waiter of this. We thought we had allowed plenty of time for dinner. The...service was very, very slow. The entree portions were also very small. By 7:45pm we still did not have our desserts or our ticket and had to cancel our desserts and ask our server several times to please get our ticket taken care of quickly. There are a lot of great restaurants in New Orleans in the CBD, so I doubt we will return to Maypop.More

Excellent food and service. Loved the cocktails and the pasta dishes were out of this word. Loved the riff on beignets. Would go back again.

The food and service were wonderful. Very easy location to get to. Cool setting inside and can’t beat the Dim Sum.

Maypop does not disappoint. They use fresh ingredients in very fresh ways and create unforgettable dishes. It's a beautiful restaurant that serves not only delicious but beautiful dishes. An Asian/World cuisine unlike any other in town.

What a delight! It is extremely difficult to categorize this restaurant except to say that it is simply wonderful. Getting in the door wasn’t easy, as people piled up by the door waiting to be seated – – we were one of the lucky ones,...we had a reservation however even so there were lots of stragglers. To their credit, the hostess and waitstaff were exceptionally polite, went out of their way to apologize for the inconvenience and even offered us free drinks for our wait. Once we were seated, the “good “just kept coming. Patrick our waiter was phenomenal; polite, ever present, efficient and quick with explanations and recommendations, he added extra to an otherwise special evening. The menu is small but as eclectic as it comes with what appeared to be haphazard/bizarre flavors mixed together—We literally ate those words as the melding of unusual bedfellows lead to a symphony of taste. There were simply no bad bites We were gifted a warm seafood beignet accessorized by a whipped creamed topping, enhanced with a bit of wasabi and dusted with lime. Lip-smacking delish. Next, my dinner companion dove into the pork jowl salad which completely snuffed out the conversation temporarily, as he happily devoured the aesthetically pleasing dish. Let’s just say he was appreciative. For my main, I had the Maypop crawfish etouffee with a lightly creamed curry sauce over house-made pasta— The fish was perfectly cooked, not rubbery or tough, with the crisp minced vegetables eye-catchingly intertwined, beautifully enhanced with the slight heat of the curry mellowed with the cream of the sauce (coconut milk ?). Outrageous. My companion had the squab dish— The meat had a slight glaze over, perfectly crisped and fork off bone tender. The flavors beneath were perfection. The bread service was comprised of 4 sesame rolls, still piping hot within the cast iron pan, Complemented with fresh coconut butter and a shellfish pepper jam, sweet to the tip of the tongue with a twinge of heat to finish. Yum Of course we had to end with a sweet, and the Maypop pie and the Maypop cake Decorated in Mardi Gras flavors/colors hit the spot— complex flavors that again worked together to please. All foodies—a stop here is as essential to your visit to New Orleans as a stop at Café Du monde for beignets. ‘Nuff saidMore

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

I don't believe they have a dress code. We were there for lunch. There were business people there. Also casual people there. Dress clean and neat and you will be fine.

They dont have Beignets but they have a great bread basket made in house. Go to the Grabouts Market for great Beignets. Speak with Madame Alice who is the elected Queen of the house.
