Much like Toups Meatery in Mid-City, Toups South specializes in meat and cocktails, and does both of them very well. This Central City spot is great for big groups, with big tables, a wrap-around counter that lets you look into the open kitchen, and large plates like fried chicken and seared red fish that are easy to share. Toups South is also open for lunch and Sunday brunch, in case goat tamales or a boudin burrito are enough to get you out of bed.
