Lunch was quite good. Each dish was creative and very flavorful. Although I didn't have a cocktail, the list was impressive, as was the collection of spirits behind the bar.

Inspired by the jazz of New Orleans & seasonal, creative fare by Chef Chris DeBarr matched to impeccable cocktails & adventurous wines, Serendipity is a stellar "neighborhood joint" that is exciting and affordable. With partner Ed Diaz of the legendary Bar Tonique, Chef Chris has created a friendly place with the most inspired menu the city has ever seen, unexpected yet playful & delicious! Serendipity is a local hangout with world class food at prices that seem a steal. Imaginative soul food for today's New Orleans!
