2800 Magazine St.
New Orleans, LA
I liked the ambiance, the brick wall and al fresco atmosphere but still classy. My friend and I each ordered the 3-course lunch for $20 each (but thanks to restaurant.com, we only paid $9.30 each).
My 1st course was the Boston lettuce salad with red wine vinagrette (a little tangy), candied pecans (i think they may have been dipped in peanut butter and the brown sugar), and goat cheese (delightful):
My friend’s 1st course was the Burrata Crostini which was toasted bread with tomato and mozarella on top, drizzled with a basil sauce over it (very delicious):
We both got the Gulf shrimp with Anson Mill’s grits, okra and sweet corn. The remoulade sauce was a bit heavy, but the shrimp were nice and big:
And for dessert, we both had the beignets (which tasted like egg, i”m not joking) and chocolate coffee pot de creme (which didn’t help at all with the egg flavor):
Overall, a nice meal at a great price. Our server was very attentive to us, I think he came over at least 5 times during our meal, asking us if everything was delicious/delightful/delectable (and every other d-word for yummy).
