Staplehouse restaurant in the Old Fourth Ward has been named the best new restaurant in America for 2016 by Bon Appétit magazine. From the lengthy article and review by Andrew Knowlton:

Staplehouse didn’t become my restaurant of the year because of a heart-wrenching story. It became my restaurant of the year because of the smart, innovative cooking of Ryan Smith and the warm, welcoming, unwavering hospitality of Kara, Jen, and the entire team. In every way imaginable, it floored me. It’s the best restaurant experience I had this year. Hands down.
