Inspired by family origins rooted in Michoacan, Mexico, the chef and owner of El Gato Nego strives to bring the most authentic Mexican cuisine to New Orleans. The restaurant serves mouth-watering, traditional dishes, including pulled pork tamales and three cheese enchiladas, as well as an extensive menu of fruity, sunny cocktails made with fresh fruit and top-shelf tequila or rum. El Gato Negro also imports beer, tequila, and other ingredients native to Mexico. Mexican tradition and culture thrive at El Gato Negro, which allows the restaurant to transport its customers south of the border through authentic, delicious food.
