Zea Rotisserie & Grill, New Orleans

I went to Zea Rotisserie & Grill on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans for lunch. Their food was SO good, I had to wobble out of there. Ok, not really, but I mimicked wobbling in the gif below. HaHaHa Are you drooling over my dessert picture? That's their chocolate brownie. It's loaded with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, caramel sauce and pecans. Zea restaurants are located throughout the state of Louisiana. They're known for their rotisserie. It's a restaurant you go to if you want a really good home cooked meal that's tasty. Zea's keeps everything classy. You must make reservations for lunch & dinner. If you don't feel like dining, you can place an order over the phone and pick up your order. Everything is convenient.

The Zea's for New Orleans is located on St. Charles Avenue. You don't have to worry about parking, because there's designated gated parking behind the restaurant. They also offer valet parking, which makes things convenient in the evenings.

Zea Rotisserie & Grill on Urbanspoon


Inside are wood tables, chairs and booths. It has a very warm feeling to it. You feel comfy & cozy while you're there. The staff is very friendly. They greeted and sat us right away. The attire for this restaurant is business & nice casual.


Let's start with drinks! Zea's has an assortment of white & red wine, champagne, specialty and cocktail drinks. The colorful drink you see below is The Sunset Slowdown. It is pineapple, Midori, peach and cranberry. It was very delightful :). It was very refreshing. Surprisingly, it's not a sweet drink. The other below, is a glass of Moscato.


Appetizers! We ordered the spinach dip sprinkled with feta. It was warm, cheesy & delicious.
I love their chips. They were warm and crisp

Again, they're known for their bbq chicken and ribs. I didn't order them this time. I'll go back around the 4th of July to show you that yumminess. I wanted to try their southern buttermilk battered fried catfish and hush puppies. Everything was so good. I selected their braised cabbage and dirty rice to go with it. Delightful!


For dessert, I had their chocolate brownie. Oh yes, I already told you about it above! Well here's a gif of it.
It's a slice of heaven. LOL Had to have coffee with it!


I have absolutely no complaints about Zea's. This is my second time going and everything remains constant and consistent. The food is excellent. They give you a lot of it (very generous portions). The staff is friendly. The atmosphere is divine and the cost is gentle to your wallet. I encourage anyone visiting the state of Louisiana to locate one and GEAUX (GO). Your tummy will thank you!

This post just made me SO hungry! And thirsty for a yummy cocktail (since I can indulge in those again!). That spinach dip is seriously making my mouth water.

I'm sorry I've been gone for so long. I kinda stopped reading blogs for a while because of the end of my pregnancy & then being home with my little man! I've only done one blog post since he was born & it was just this week! I have been posting lots of pics on Instagram though.

I hope you've been doing well Kim!

Kim - I think I would travel to Louisiana for that brownie alone! It looks amazing. A truly great restaurant is hard to find, but Zea's sounds like it's one of them.
