This very simple hidden away kitchen has amazing Poboys! Try the spicy shrimp version or the Half-half. Very local place.

I suppose that one may want to come here because it is an Irish Channel Landmark, and if that is your reason for visiting, that's OK. But be aware that the building is dilapidated, that toilets are cramped, smelly and dirty and it is a...More

I know this place has thousands of good reviews but I don't understand why. This place is disgusting. I'm not talking about the food, this place is so dirty I can't fathom to understand why it has not shut down. There were dogs walking around...More

Went with friends who have been here before. Very enjoyable little place with lots of friendly people including the Irish lady bartender. Po Boys are good and the fries are very good with a unique flavor. Don't expect anything fancy. A ledge along the window...More

The reviews of this place were pretty consistent - amazing food but sketchy place - so I decided to check it out. I am all for dives and holes in the wall with great food. That said, I don’t get how this place is allowed...More

My husband and I ran across this little dive years ago during a garden district carriage ride. It’s tradition now! The oyster po boys are excellent as is the fire cracker shrimp. We love the neighborhood vibe it has.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

Sorry, I can't answer this question, but they may. Whatever they use was very light. Like Patricia suggested, you should call them.

Description
Born in 1952, in the Irish Channel neighborhood, Parasol's is a New Orleans tradition that is known as THE place to go for roast beef po boys, and a huge St. Patricks Day block party. We are a neighborhood bar to the world, where everyone is welcome and treated like an old friend. Our kitchen is dedicated to taking old school New Orleans food to a new level of flavor and quality. Belly up to the old Irish bar and enjoy a pint of Guiness or wander upstairs to our smoke free dining room. You can indulge in our delicious food either way. Parasol's is a throw back to a simpler time when the social life of the neighborhood centered around the corner bar. A place where the stuff of life is discussed, celebrated and even mourned. At Parasol's it's all about you !
