This extravagant restaurant has long waits and seems to be a favorite among the locals (it was highly recommended to me by friends who'd lived in NOLA). We waited well over an hour for a table on a Thursday night, but they text you when your table is available and there are pretty little parks and cemeteries to walk around while waiting. The interior is best described as idiosyncratic, with murals all over the walls and weird art, and just so many different colors. It's cozy and friendly and warm.
The food is simply out of this world. We had a few things, including such gems as shrimp and alligator sausage cheesecake, duck gumbo, grilled mahi mahi with their version of salsa verde, and, of course, bread pudding for dessert. Everything was superbly prepared, the flavors were expertly combined, and the plating was attractive. For what it is, it's an excellent value. Tip: drinking in public is legal in New Orleans. Grab a drink at the bar after putting your name down (we got their special watermelon mojitos, which were refreshing and delicious) or BYO and take a stroll around the city.
