At the 2003 French Quarter Fest I was fortunate to find one of my all-time favorite New Orleans dishes at Sclafani's booth: Corn and Crawfish Bisque. In fact I liked it so much that I contacted them to ask for the recipe, which Peter so graciously gave me.
Recently I read that Chefs Peter and Gino Sclafani were going to open a Sclafani's bistro in the Chateau LeMonyne (a Holiday Inn), 301 Rue Dauphine.
Here's a review:
"Sclafani's is an outstanding New Orleans restaurant with a 50-year reputation. Now with a new bistro in the Chateau LeMoyne that has romantic courtyard dining. Chefs Peter and Gino Sclafani serve tantalizing Creole Italian dishes like soft-shell crawfish with Creole meuniere sauce, pasta jambalaya, and white chocolate bread pudding. Finest wines from Italy or California. Superb!"
Has anyone been?
