About Us

Vessel is an exciting  concept in the heart of Mid-City, one block off the Canal Streetcar.  Located in an iconic 1914 church, Vessel is not only a restaurant, but a beautiful architectural setting.  Louisiana native Eric Sibley helms the kitchen and offers a menu emphasizing locally-sourced, fresh seasonal ingredients in a uniquely New Orleans's tradition.  Our beverage selections include a varied wine list, freshly handcrafted cocktails and unique craft beers.  Vessel will please everyone, whether it be sharing an intimate dinner, enjoying cocktails at our large bar, meeting new people  at our community tables or dining and drinking al-fresco on our outdoor patio.

Within a  year after opening, Vessel has already been nationally recognized in VOGUE Magazine, ELLE DECOR Magazine (seven best things to do in New Orleans that deviate from the expected), JUST LUXE and even selected locally as Readers' Choice Bar of the Year by EATER NOLA.
