Marigny Brasserie needs Gordon Ramsey!

I am speechless.

Without a doubt the worst meal I have ever had after living in New Orleans for 13 years was last night at the Marigny Brasserie.

They really need to get their act together.

First off they were out of a million different things. I understand this but it was a Saturday night. Plan accordingly. Also, I didn't really need to hear how busy you were over and over on Friday. That is your problem not mine.

Everything was awkward from the start with drinks orders to screwed up drinks and screwed up dishes but the worst possible problem was that the food was not cold, it was ICE cold. Stuffed shrimp with was 100% obvious that the shrimp and stuffing were made during the day then thrown into a steamer. That is fine but make sure it is hot! It wasn't. What is less appealing than icy cold stuffing on a cold dried out shrimp?????

Nice ceasar salad....kidding! Could it kill you guys to throw a couple croutons on it???

Fried green tomato with shrimp remoulade? Are you kidding me? Three super thin sliced of friend green tomato with 4-5 mealy, bait, tiny, canned, shrimp on top with a 3rd of a spoonful of remoulade sauce. Again, EPIC FAIL!!!!!

Some friends were in town and one of the ladies in the group had a wonderful meal there years ago but I suspect if was before the menu change to burgers, po-boys, salads, and pasta.

AWFUL....EPIC FAIL. They should be ashamed!

Their incredible location will keep them in stellar business but I was absolutely SHOCKED at how awful a meal this was.

While watching Hell's Kitchen or Kitchen Makeover or whatever it is with Gordon Ramsey it came to mind again after that meal as I was leaving.....All I could think was they need a complete overhaul from top to bottom.
