After three days in new Orleans French quarter my wife and came across this wonderful and private restaurant. Set back from the road all you first see is a fountain and a few chairs, then once you walk down the path the restaurant starts to reveal it self. Very old and stylish brick building with interesting features both inside and out. We were greeted politely and offered a table inside ( we were told you have to be lucky to sit outside, a good sign we thought). Once inside we were offered drinks and recommended a cocktail and a way of preparation of what come next.. The cocktails were an excellent idea, all day on our feet, we were ready to relax. Now the food.... For starter we had the Gambon soup, very popular in new Orleans, but this was from another world. The mains were nothing to special but then for desert we had the berry crumble topped with ice cream.. Well this move my score from a 3 to a 4, coming from the UK my mums crumble was always hard to beat but this was top marks from the presentation, taste and thought that I could eat another!! Over all a very good restaurant but improvements are needed in teaching the staff not to remove your plate from infront of you until you have finished eating. Not good!
