Creole cuisine at its finest is on the Sobou Restaurant menu with small plates inspired by Louisiana street food.

Casual sophistication is the dress code, which also sums up the creative cuisine. With private dining spaces and the captivating courtyard, this is an exceptional gastronomic experience.
