For visitors to New Orleans a quick ride (well at least a ride) on the Canal Street Streetcar will take you to this little hidden gem. Although all the meals in our party of four were exceptional including starters and desert DO NOT MISS THE TUNA ENTREE. This was our twenty-ninth visit to New Orleans and we have developed a list of favorite restaurants to visit.

Had a 7:30 reservation on a Friday night and were promptly seated. Since we were a party of two were given the option of sitting in a two top right by the hostess station in the main dining room. It was not a bad location. We had drinks and it was one of the best Cosmopolitans I have had. For appetizers I had the Potato and Leek soup which was velvety smooth and incredibly delicious, my husband had the mussels with pomme frittes that could have been a meal in itself. For entrees I had the special of lobster pasta which again was delicious a perfect portion. My husband had the double cut pork chop very good. Desserts were also great. The Smore dessert was beyond words -the Pecan Pie was also fantastic.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThey were running a lobsterThey were running a lobster appetizer that may have been the best thing I've had in this type of restaurant in the last three years.

I'm a regular at other neighborhood restaurants but now I have a new place to enjoy. Each dish is unique in its flavor and presentation. The duck was amazing! The portion size as well as the side choices that were included were my favorties. I like a menu that is specific such as this one. It makes it so much easier to decide what I'm going to eat and it reveals the creativity of the kitchen. The restarunt is the perfic setting for me. It's cozy, not rushed, and relaxing.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit and we're hooked.First visit and we're hooked. Food was super. The double porkchop was grilled to perfection. My wife had the scallops: three nice sized scallops prepared to perfection.
The appetizers were out of the ordinary for South LA. The spaghetti with little neck clams came in a delightful light creamy garlic cheese sauce. The sweetbreads with risotto were perfectly presented and delightful to the palatte.
A bit pricy for every day dinning-- the meal with one glass of house wine came to $94.00 plus tip. But great for a night out.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was pleasing to the eyesFood was pleasing to the eyes and to the taste. The variety of dishes offered was very good.
