Wonderful little restaurant in a refurbished cottage located in Mid City. Not typical New Orleans Creole food. Eclectic American, using many local ingredients in a creative way. Only 30 seats, so you need to get a reservation. Interesting cocktails...had a Punchafunkadelic. Never heard of some of the ingredients in it, but it was fabulous. Friendly wait staff and a view into the busy kitchen. The food was phenomenal. Great presentation and flavor. Highly recommend. Just off the Canal Streetcar line too.

This place is tiny (like eating at someone's house). The food is great. Not traditional New Orleans, exactly - more a play on New Orleans staples and ingredients, with a few completely different things. Very exciting, and a lively venue.

Encouraged by my waiter, I ordered the scallops. Bread was served and was . .plain. However the seared scallops arrived and looked wonderful. After eating the first one, i began to realize there were only four. Skinny side of sautéed onions did little to assuage my evening appetite. I went home and had a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Great drinks and food. start at the little bar literally right inside the door. have a drink while your table is set up. food is terrific. it's not your usual new orleans faire. more eclectic with a nod to the city's and south's gastronomic history. this is a tiny restaurant, maybe 10 tables. you must have reservations. it's worth it. it's fairly expensive, too, but worth it.

This is a neighborhood restaurant with great food and staff. Sweet Breads were to die for. Gumbo was spot on. Duck breast was tender and perfectly cooked. The grilled pork chop was
artfully cooked and presented. Only mistake was to order two apps. No room for dessert!
