We stumbled on La Cote Brasserie after missing our flight back to LA and spending most of the day in NO airport on standby for oversold flights. Extra night in New Orleans turned out to be such a nice surprise. La Cote ambiance and stuff made us feel so welcomed and pampered that stress of the day melted away. French onion soup, bouillabaisse,BBQ gulf shrimps all were exquisite. The waitress was so accommodating and compassionate to our plight - she even treated us with free desert of profiteroles with ice cream in the middle, on top of chocolate beignets that were heavenly. The experience was so tasty and healing, we can't compliment this restaurant enough.
