Went to Cuvee, it looked nice with its exposed brick walls and high ceilings. But the food was disappointing. I always think of NOLA as having great food , Cuvee would be good if it were in Des Moines, or Salt Lake CIty, but not for New Orleans. In New York it would probably get a 20 by zagat ratings. The foie gras was OK, just OK. The oyster pot pie , was good, it wasnt exciting but it was different at least. The restaurant had a smell of bad fish when I walked in,that's always a turnoff. I did order fish , however, the salmon had a nut crust and was cooked to perfection, but the taste was bland. The side order of risotto came when I was almost done with my meal and the size of it was really small. The bbq mussels, had a taste of unfresh mussels,and they should change the name of that dish , as it didnt resemble any sort of bbq. It was in a tasty broth but nothing reminiscent of bbq. Nothing on the desert list sounded good, so I tried the molten chocolate cake which was good, the cherries were too brandied for me but I ate them anyway,. The coffee was good. The restaurant in general did not meet my expectations at all.
