Contemporary Italian | Central Business District, New Orleans

I took local clients to a business dinner. They had never been to Josephine Estelle, some were skeptical and others looking forward to trying something new. Everyone left happy, and I suspect they will come back! I certainly will when I am in town! Service was impeccable! We tried many dishes and every bite was fantastic! Thank you for a successful evening. More

Creole | Warehouse District, New Orleans

We had Baked Oysters and Oysters Bienville for starters. The Bienville were excellent. I had the Fresh Drum Yvonne which was very good and my wife had the Stuffed Eggplant which was over the top(plenty of shrimp and crabmeat). For dessert we shared a Bananas Foster Bread Pudding, which was also excellent. We couldn't understand why the place wasn't packed. More

French | Central Business District, New Orleans

My wife asked to celebrate her birthday with Sunday Brunch at Couvant. We had dined there a few times, liked it and wanted to see what their new Chef had changed, so I made reservations with Open Table. When we arrived, we were seated at a quiet two-top booth. Our server arrived quickly, introduced himself and warmly welcomed us to Couvant. As we looked over the menu selections, the manager came to our table, introduced himself and said he was happy we came to Couvant to celebrate a special day. He asked if we would be having any alcohol, and we replied that we would. He smiled and said he would be back in a moment. Our server returned to our table after a few minutes, asked if we had any questions about the menu selections, which we didn't, and took our orders. My wife selected Quiche Lorraine served with a side salad of fresh mixed greens with thinly sliced radishes and a champagne vinagrette, and I selected their Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Lemon with the same side salad that came with my wife's order and a side order of Sliced Avocado. A moment later, the manager returned to our table with two flutes of a sparkling wine, which he served us, with compliments from Couvant, for our special occasion. The sparkling wine was a nicely chilled blanc de blanc style and made a wonderful aperitif while our food was being prepared. Soon our orders arrived and were served to us. Both orders were well prepared, plated attractively, still hot, light and delicious. A short time later, the manager came to our table and asked if everything was satisfactory. I thanked him and replied, if the background music playing was Parisian accordion, rather than soft jazz, and I had a St-Germain Cocktail by my hand, I could easily imagine we were enjoying a delicious brunch in a wonderful Parisian brasserie. The manager said he couldn't produce the accordion music, but I would have a St-Germain Cocktail by my hand in a moment. It was a memorable birthday brunch for my wife. More

American | Uptown, New Orleans

Bistro Daisy remains one of my very favorite restaurants in New Orleans for a long time. The food is always excellent. You really cannot go wrong with any of the dishes or specials. Great appetizers and salads. Excellent seafood as you would expect in New Orleans. If you are a meat eater the steak, duck and even chicken are fantastic. A vegetarian choice as well. A very good bar, and some of the best and friendly service anywhere. Locals love it, and visitors should try it. More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
