My wife and I have stayed at the Prince Conti hotel each of the three times we've been in New Orleans and have noticed the small little bistro across the street on Dauphine each time, but we thought it was only a breakfast/lunch place. This time, on the recommendation of our bartender in The Bombay Club and our checking the reviews here, my wife and I made reservations for dinner on Saturday, 7/12. As has been noted, it is a small place inside. We were feeling adventurous and decided to try the 3-course Feed Me. While waiting for our first course we saw another couple opting for the same thing and it looked really good. Much to our surprise, our courses were totally different from theirs! Our first course was the frog legs. Now, growing up in the country in Indiana I've had frog legs before, but these were incredible...so moist and so tasty! The second course was quail with rice and andouille sausage...again very moist and flavorful. Our main course was swordfish with the chef's "basterdized" sauce. Oh my gosh, it was SO GOOD! It was the best swordfish my wife and I have EVER eaten! With each course, the waiter would bring it out and then Chef Mars would come to the table to explain what it was, its ingredients, and how it was made.
We now have a new favorite restaurant in New Orleans...Muriel's is still our second favorite...and we will definitely eat here each time we visit. The menu looks really good, but if you're adventurous you need to do the Feed Me. Chef Mars will not do you wrong!
