“we'll give it another chance”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a new restaurant along Magazine St., New Orleans, which chock-full of really good dining experiences along the about 5 mile stretch. This one has a way to go to join that list. On the good side, the service was prompt and friendly. The fish sandwich, on a crispy-fresh French bread, with a mildly spicy aoli, was very good. Fish was fried just right. On the negative side: the ambience needs work. The space seems not cozy, more industrial, that the French bistro idea they seem to be trying to present, based on the menu. The music was a bit loud in this largely concrete and brick structure, and not more relaxing dining music, which of course could just our taste.The "Lyon Salad" is not the French Salade Lyonnaise, but states most of the correct ingredients. Mine was quite wilted and the pieces of frisée were very large, necessitating cutting up the salad. The house-made lardons were just not up to par, with the larger bits quite hard and chewy (would have been better to have heated them). The dressing was very tart.
There are several other dishes I'd like to try, however a diner at the next table who is an informed critic didn't seem to like the mussels. Some French people at another nearby table seemed content with the pork dish. So I think it's worth another shot.
They don't yet have a liquor license, so bring your own wine.

“Neighborhood Gem!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I didn't even know this place existed until I saw a menu in my mailbox. Grappling with a place nearby to take a friend for dinner, I checked out this (rather small) menu and thought it looked good enough, reasonable prices at least. There was a note on back that they don't yet have a liquor license, so it's BYOB. I grabbed a bottle of wine and we walked down. The inside is very clean, new, but laid back and kind of funky. No white table cloths here, which is a relief. The menu is great, a few selections for apps, salads, and maybe 5 or 6 entrees with something for everyone. We ordered the shrimp risotto - out of this world! The shrimp were seasoned perfectly and the presentation was very nice. Our server was very friendly and well informed. All in all, great prices, great food, great atmosphere. Welcome to the 'hood, Baie Rouge!

“Damn Fine Burger”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Burger was big and jiucy and had some kind of delicious purple onion relish on it. Yum. Can't wait to have another one. Great addition to the neighborhood. It's a casual cafe. Oh and the have fries with brie on them! Great burger and french fries and brie, my favorite foods!
