Neighborhood: Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Description: Creole/Fusion cuisine by Chef Michael Doyle. Trained at Dante's Kitchen in New Orleans, Chef Doyle is making a statement with his innovative cuisine. This restaurant is taking off as the latest in a long line of excellent and relatively unknown New Orleans restaurants. Not far from the jazz on Frenchmen St., this restaurant would be a wonderful way to start an evening out.

I recently ate lunch at Maurepas and was thrilled with the food. Choices of food were ecletic and presented with non-traditional sides, e.g. liver and onions--onions included greens and were enhanced with a vriety of spices--yum. Ah, the desserts, home made and fabulous. The chocolate pie was heaven--light and fluffy with the wow of real chocolate. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting New orleans

The cocktails are great - really well-crafted. There were eight of us so we tried many items on the menu - which ranged from very good to excellent. All of the small plates we tried were excellent. The Vietnamese coffee ice cream is memorable.

Group of five for lunch. Brussels spouts - delicious. Cheesy bread with gruyere butter - decadently yummy. Liver and onions - unique in that the onions are spring onions (like green onions, not yellow or white onions). Loved the liver, not as much love for the greens they sat on. The chicken dish with grits was killer as were the mussels served with warm bread and lots of broth to sop up with the bread. And then the desserts... had the Peanut Butter ice cream (sweet but with caramel and salt mixed in - rich and unique!), a chocolate "soufflé" pie which was light and fluffy with a almost candy-like crust, and finally the chocolate eclairs, which everyone declared their favorite. Chef came out to talk to us - a real down-to-earth guy who cares about his family, his long hours and the health of the neighborhood that his restaurant is helping to revive. Congrats Maurepas on your success!

My first meal here and was quite pleased. The friendly and knowledgable staff made it all the more special. The assorted cheese tray (large) was wonderful along with a sampling of beet salad and a compote of fig and some great bread. A kitchen staff member delivered the cheese tray explaining each style and its origin, as it apparently changes a bit based on availability. My entry of fried oysters atop a bed of kale were delicious. Super friendly staff and informed foodies. "I look forward to a return visit"

Hands down my current favorite in the city. This is a great place to take out of town guests to sample great local dishes made with local ingredients. The cocktail selections to start your meal off are great, with some really adventurous combinations. Be sure to begin with one of he large pickle platters or cheese samplers. Main course favorites of mine are either he roasted chicken or he shrimp hot pot. The beet or brussel sprout side dishes are also both fantastic. And....if you have room after that for dessert, try one of the ice creams or creme brûlée. I promise, you'll be thinking about what you'll try on the next visit there before you have finished wiping your mouth from the current meal...
