Our favorite dishes are the Accra, the whole fish and the griot! From the music to the drinks and especially the full flavored Haitian dishes - Fritai is the real deal! Bon Bagay!

The food at Fritai was absolutely delicious!! Since our visit I have shared the website with several of my friends who live in New Orleans. I told them they had to try it out!! We were very impressed. So many different flavors all coming together. Great experience. Will definitely eat here again on my next trip to the city!!

This was a delightful dining experience. The ambiance is quaint and intimate, but will sufficient space between tables to have private conversations and practice social distancing. The food menu selection is substantial. I also really enjoyed the gentle guidance provided with the drinks menu. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional in every way. I’m from New Orleans and I have dined at a variety of great establishments. This meal was expertly prepared, beautifully plated and completely delicious. I was planning my next reservation before I left the restaurant.
