Restaurants & Bars New Orleans

Finally went on Saturday night. The place was packed and about as loud as any restaurant in New Orleans. The design has similar elements to its sister restaurant Cochon, which means it’s simple yet chic. We had a 9:30 reservation and got there early and were seated immediately. The service is a group effort, but both our waiters were very attentive. Unfortunately my wife and my friend’s wife weren’t feeling well and had to leave shortly after we ordered our entrees. Oh well, more to eat for me and my friend from out of town. We had the white fish ceviche over butterbean puree. It was good, but could have used a little more acidity. The seafood bisque was decent, but needed a little more seafood. Raw oysters were fresh and served with an awesome vinaigrette. For my entree, I had an excellent baked fish with tomato, jalapeno and rice fritters. The fritters added a nice crispy texture to the dish and it was very spicy, which was fine by me. My friend ordered a shrimp roll which he said wasn’t as good as a lobster roll (I thought that would have been obvious). I watched the table next to us devour a whole fish. That night’s menu had about six to choose from ranging in price from $34-$157 and the size of the fish varied from 12oz. to 28oz. I would love to go back when the wife is feeling better or when I’m with more adventurous eaters because the whole fish seemed like the way to go. I wouldn’t go here if you aren’t in the mood for fish. Even seafood lovers might be disappointed because there wasn’t much in that department either. All in all, it’s a really nice addition to the New Orleans’ restaurant scene and has dishes that you can’t get anywhere else in town.
