Simply the best in New Orleans, period.
Items ordered were:
royal red shrimp & crab ravigote
potato gnocchi
potato crisp P & J oysters
flounder Pontchartrain
five-spiced breast of duckling
pineapple soufflé
I'd say the highlights were the royal red shrimp & crab ravigote, the potato crisp P & J oysters(the oysters are fried to perfection, with crispy crust and tender inside), as well as the flounder Pontchartrain, which was rich in flavor. The flounder was recommended by our server, and it didn't disappoint.

Overall really nice dinner. We didn't expect this level of excellence in this restaurant. A nice surprise.

We love the exceptional service we received from the moment we entered until we left. All three of us enjoyed our food and drinks. It was our favorite, again while visiting New Orleans.
