A new project from chef Edgar Caro and partner Antonio Mata, is now open in downtown New Orleans.

Why it matters: Brasa South American Steakhouse takes over the former Morton's Steakhouse location inside One Canal Place. It's a premier location in what's soon to be a busier-than-ever intersection as the new Caesars New Orleans comes together across the street.

Dig in: Brasa's downtown restaurant is the second edition of the steakhouse, but becomes the brand's flagship, according to a press release.

  • It "is an homage to the asado culture of Colombia, Brazil, and Argentina, showcasing the open-fire traditions from Caro's childhood," the press release says.
  • That means a menu with touches of extravagance, like a 30-day aged 36 oz. Wagyu tomahawk steak or a lobster cocktail, alongside South American staples like boquerones and empanadas.

Reservations are now available.

Meanwhile: New Orleans-area restaurant owners are getting a few more places open as we head into the depths of festival season.
