Description ZAGAT: Food & Service rated Very Good to Excellent. <br /><br />SEE BELOW FOR OUR WEEKLY SPECIALS! <br /><br />Executive Chef Adil Fawzi is responsible for the creation of a menu not too often seen in a bistro setting. He takes a proactive role in the maintenance of the kitchen; on any given night throughout the week he can be found manning the fires, ensuring that the quality of the dishes he designed never falters. <br /><br />The consistency of the food is obvious to any of their regulars. The menu is a sophisticated, creative combination of classic Provençal fare fused with inspiration from the Mediterranean coast. Chef Anthony Raggiri's menu provides the palette with an eclectic array of dishes drawing tastes from his native Marseille, Spain, Italy, Greece and Morocco, all the while staying true to the premise that less is more.

Amali is a sustainably driven Mediterranean restaurant. Rather than write about ourselves, we prefer to let the press speak for us.<br /><br />Wine Enthusiast, Top 100 Wine Restaurants in the Country, 2014<br /><br />Eater 38 Essential New York Restaurants 2013-2014<br />"This handsome Mediterranean restaurant serves one of the city's top brick chickens, and the seafood, pasta dishes, and charcuterie are just as good. Amali is...a destination for Greek wine enthusiasts."<br /><br />Critic's Recommendation, New York Times, 2012: "Amali has a commitment to seasonality and sustainability and a daring wine list."<br /><br />Two Stars, New York Magazine, 2012: "It gives over a whole section of the menu to salads and vegetables along with an impressive wine bottle list."<br /><br />Wine & Spirits Magazine, Top Newcomer. "Amali takes an American approach to Mediterranean ingredients, creating something that is at once more Greek than any restaurant and less ethnic than any of them."

"Unfortunately at lunch on the weekend they limit you to a brunch menu which is very limited. The menu is egg heavy, not my choice for a 1pm Saturday lunch. The salumi which we shared was delicious and fresh but not very big for the price."

The Rye Grill and Bar reopened to large crowds in January 2009 after a major renovation that boasts four separate dining rooms, fireplaces and a front porch. Long-time patrons will be relieved to know that it's still the casual neighborhood spot they've always loved. The Grill offers the same friendly service and menu favorites that made it a crowd pleaser for fifteen years, from it's fried calamari, Cajun chicken quesadillas and 4-layer dip to its salads, pizzas, sandwiches, sliders and burgers. Popular entrees include the Rye Grill's signature farfalle with hot Italian sausage, pan roasted filet mignon, pot chicken and fish selections. Guests may have drinks and appetizers in its lively mahogany bar room on the first floor or enjoy a bit more quiet at the nautical themed bar upstairs. Dining room options accommodate all for, dinner and private parties. Valet parking is available at lunch during the week.

"We often eat at Rye Grill. They have a nice varied menu so everyone can find something they want. Unfortunately the noise level on a Saturday night is deafening! We thought it might be better to sit upstairs, but, no, it was so loud you had to shout to be heard."

"With all the wonderful places to eat in Nola, this was a welcome change if you LOVE steak! This is steak all the way-- several different kinds, all prepared perfectly on the grill. I don't recall seeing anything on the entree list other than steak. So only bring your carnivore here, and they will be in heaven. The hearts of palm salad was also delicious."

One block uptown from the corner of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas, where century old live oaks shadow the famous music club Tipitina's, sits a mid-nineteenth century barge board cottage with burgundy clap boards and yellow shutters. Dinner plates line the walls and bear the names of Dick and Jenny's founding customers. <br /><br />Originally a grocery store, and later a po-boy shop, this funky New Orleans original is a gathering place for those who seek fine dining cuisine in a casual, comfortable setting. A small hand painted sign on the building hangs above the flower baskets and simply says "Dick & Jenny's."

"This is the place to go for a relaxed meal. The walls are filled with plates. Read the story if the plates painted by customers in the menu! The salad and seafood were fabulous. The steak just ok. Will try again"
