EAT: 1,000 Figs

EAT: 1,000 Figs

Born out of a falafel food truck that boasted what were (some would argue) the best fries in the city, 1,000 Figs is a plant-filled oasis on a small street cutting across the entrancing, water-adjacent neighborhood of Bayou St. John. The fresh, earthy Mediterranean cuisine has inspired a cult following across the city, with dishes like lamb heart kebab with yogurt and pickled cabbage pushing 1,000 Figs far beyond its mobile past. If you’re traveling in a pair (or really hungry), the falafel feast is the ideal way to sample a range of the restaurant’s classic dips, pickles and spreads in one go, including falafel and flatbread paired with hummus, baba ghanouj and yogurt all whipped up in-house.

Know Before You Go: The space can get cramped during dinner hours, so lunch (or the weekly, bagel-themed brunch) is an ideal time to visit without bumping elbows with a neighbor.
