Blackened catfish lettuce wraps, shrimp po' boys and ginger-jalapeño jelly frogs legs are just a few of the New Orleans-style bites available at Brooklyn newbie Loosie Rouge, a bar that derives food and drink direction from The South. Cocktails too take form as New Orleans classics like the Vieux Carré (named after the city's French Quarter) and the French 75, reworked with a modern facelift thanks to barman Arnaud Dissais. Below, Dissais updates another New Orleans staple, the Hurricane, using tropical flavors and a touch of heat.
