Has anyone been to the Restaurant New Orleans on DeKalb Ave/South Portland? I've been there several times now and have fallen in love with it. The menu is limited (classic dishes: gumbo, etoufee, etc.) and the service is sometimes slow, but in a relaxed manner. You almost feel like you are down south. Not to mention the French Quarter decor and cozy gas fireplace.

The food is very fresh and feels like home-cooking. The bourbon rice is fantastic. Also, the prices are very reasonable and entrees come with a free glass of wine. However, wine snobs might want to BYOB.

I'm curious to hear other opinions--I really feel like it's overlooked in the neighborhood.
