This exotic and contemporary Japanese restaurant on the popular Oak Street has a menu that’ll take you by surprise. Keith Dusko, the chef in charge of Chiba, describes the restaurant’s cuisine as “traditional Japanese favorites with a New Orleans twist.” Uncommon, offbeat fish is readily available on a nightly basis and sushi rolls are often filled with unconventional things like fruit, foie gras, pork and bananas Foster.
