These days, the Old Fourth Ward is booming in retail and F&B offerings, and Two Urban Licks is just one reason why. The restaurant's slogan is "fiery American eats and cool beats." It offers live blues Tuesday through Saturday, a courtyard with a retractable roof for alfresco dining, and a location inside a renovated warehouse: Basically meeting the criteria needed to be deemed trendy (which indeed it is). Start with the smoked salmon chips or the sweet and spicy shaved calamari. Continue your culinary journey with Coca-Cola barbecued lamb ribs or a juicy bistro steak, accompanied by herb-whipped potatoes, roasted mushrooms, green beans, and chimichurri. Tuck into the hazelnut chocolate toffee cake to end your meal on a sweet note. The brunch menu is equally impressive, with fun names for the "Hangover Cure" menu of cocktails like the Bloody Badass or the Hot & Dirty, and sparkling specialties (the fact that you can add a 7-oz. Highlife pony for a buck is pure gold). While cocktail options and craft brews are many, Two Urban Licks also boasts a one-of-a-kind wine program, with a 26-ft. wall of 72 stainless barrels of wine and a gravity-based system for pouring. The result is more wines than you could ever fathom housed in a restaurant so far from wine country.
