Welcome to El Gato Negro, New Orleans’ most authentic Mexican kitchen! Inspired by family recipes from the western Mexican state of Michoacán, our extensive menu makes even the most critical mouths water. Whether you’re in the mood for tender seared beef, fire-grilled seafood, or roasted pork, each of our dishes is carefully prepared with the finest and freshest ingredients available.

Exotic drink enthusiasts will indulge in refreshing cocktails such as our pineapple cilantro margaritas or muddled fruit mojitos, made to order with hand-squeezed satsumas, raspberries and limes, and top shelf tequilas and rums. We also offer several rare beers, tequilas and other imported concoctions native to Mexico that aren’t easily found stateside. Come visit one of our three great locations in Lakeview, the French Quarter or Destrehan for casual indoor & outdoor dining and an unforgettable authentic Mexican experience!
