The Backyard is a local NOLA favorite that has been firing up its grill since 2014. This neighborhood gem takes pride not just in its smoked meats and high-quality, fresh ingredients, but also in something no other New Orleans establishment can claim…its Kentucky Bourbon, aged in barrels and bottled on site. Barbecue can’t solve all our problems, but Bourbon can try, right? When the restaurant enterprises expanded into Bourbon production, we signed right up to take its established brand into a smooth and refined new territory.
