Meson 923 is housed in a beautifully restored warehouse a short distance from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, a humble locale for one of New Orleans' best new contemporary dining locations. Baruch Rabasa stepped up after Chef Chris Lynch's departure, and the complete lack of slowdown speaks entirely to Rabasa's talents. Trained at the Culinary Institute of America, Rabasa melds fine dining French techniques with the cuisine of his Mexican heritage and Barcelona relatives. Almost everything goes through a sous vide treatment at Meson, meaning the beef filet falls apart at the touch of a fork. Meson 923 gets incredibly packed on weekend nights, so guests are well advised to make reservations, although there is balcony seating that is walk-in only.
