This corner hangout gets locals and a few visitors, who know that the trout Tchoupitoulas—a rocking pan-fried trout topped with grilled veggies and shrimp—is worth a stop if you’re out for a shop. Nothing else will blow your hair back here, but the daily blackboard specials such as brisket, lamb shank, and white beans with pork chops are just fine, and somehow we often end up around this stretch of Magazine when hunger strikes.
