we recently spent a week in New Orleans. We booked several fine restaurants for luch rather than dinner--many menu items the same, and we get to try more of them for the money. When we arrived, hostess addressed us by both first and last name, led us through the kitchen to our table ( a treat for my chef husband) Glad we were seated in the glassed atrium room--front dining room seemed crowded and loud. Service throughout our four course decadent lunch was impeccable--friendly yet supremely professional.
The turtle soup takes three days to make and you can taste it--such depth of flavor in all of the dishes. My drum (local fish) was nothing short of amazing--succulent, perfectly done and with excellent acompaniments. Do pre-order one of their fabulous desserts (bread pudding souffle with whiskey sauce was superb). Only thing keeping me from a full-on 5-star review was my husband's duck confit was dried out--it's cured in duck fat--how can a confit come out dry? All in all, a highlight of our trip and well worth the money.
