Peche Seafood Grill. In French, "pêché" means "catch." Inspired by trips to Spain and Uruguay, Peche will focus on seafood cooked over an open wood fire. Diners can watch as the seafood, along with meats and vegetables, cooks over the flames. The dishes, though, will still be rooted in Louisiana. The restaurant is a partnership between chefs Donald Link (Herbsaint, Cochon), Stephen Stryjewski (Cochon) and Ryan Prewitt, although Prewitt will have primary authority over the new kitchen.<br> Housed in a restored 19th-century building, Peche will share the modern aesthetic of Cochon. According to the Link Restaurant Group, the restaurant will have "high, pickled-wood ceilings; large, soaring windows; a thick-topped Cypress bar; and a marble top oyster bar."

"We had the ceviche and the tuna appetizer special and they were wonderful. The simple house salad was perfectly prepared. Then we both had the crab and chillies with cappellini which was outstanding. Place was packed at 6:30 PM in late July in New Orleans which tells you they are doing things right."

Occupying a late 1800&#39;s corner drugstore in the heart of the Magazine Street Antique &amp; shopping district, Lilette balances bistro &amp; fine dining with contemporary French &amp; Italian fare.

"As good as the hangar steak is I had the salmon entree and it was superb. The sizzling shrimp is a wonderful appetizer. Can't get there enough."

Opened in October 2001 with native John Besh at the helm, Restaurant August is the only restaurant to be awarded a perfect "5 Bean" score from <i>The Times-Picayune</i> in the past two years. <i>Food & Wine</i> bestowed Besh with the honor of "Best New Chef" in 1998. <i>Gourmet</i> magazine's Guide to America's Best Restaurants listed August in its top five picks in New Orleans.

"Went to August for their Friday lunch. When I first saw the price 20.14 I thought they were dating the menu. The price for a three course lunch was $20.14. What a value! They sure don't skimp on quality. All of the entrees on the regular lunch menu were more expensive than the three course lunch. The Pate Campagne appetizer was a generous portion with an excellent taste. The entrees were wonderful and the desserts were big. Don't let this pass."

"Went for brunch. Sat outside and could smell a wood grill in the vicinity. Lo and behold it was the chef at Coquette smoking a whole pig. As a result I had the hame sandwich that was outstanding. My wife had the vegetable plate which was also outstanding. Great restaurant."

"Dined outside on the raised porch and it was wonderful ambiance. Service was great. The best hangar steak in town. The frites were great. The sizzling shrimp appetizer is always superb. The raw fish plate is always goo."

"As usual the food was excellent. Had the grilled chicken with crawfish Americane. The soup of the day was absolutely delicious. I usually get the gumbo but I am glad I changed because it was great. The beef shortrib appetizer was outstanding. We are lucky to have a restaurant like Herbsaint."

Experience the cuisine that has created raving fans of local diners and national and local food critics alike. Chef Tenney Flynn (New Orleans magazine's 2004 "Chef of the Year") ensures the highest quality seafood by flying in products from around the globe and featuring only the best from local waters - both at their seasonal peak. This commitment to freshness, variety and to the guest are some of the many reasons GW Fins prints its menu daily and has received numerous glowing reviews in The Times-Picayune (4 beans), Food & Wine, Southern Living and Esquire magazines. We look forward to serving you soon so we may learn what you think.

"Time in and time out GW Fins serves up the best seafood and all around great meal. Wines by the glass are great. When people are coming from out of town and ask where to eat in New Orleans GW Fins should be on the short list."

From its first day, Emeril's Restaurant & the multitalented man who reinvents it with every meal became the focus of ecstatic praise. A decade after Emeril's Restaurant exploded onto the culinary scene, Emeril's has evolved & transformed itself for the 21st century by updating its flagship restaurant. Completed in 2000, the innovative details reflect the significance of the warehouse district location, new New Orleans cuisine & Emeril’s extensive wine list. The Food Bar is framed by a tapestry of glass encased spices showcasing the bold & creative flavors that Chef Emeril features. Emeril's state of the art kitchen is visible from the main dining room. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no sleeveless shirts for men, no hats or flip flops. David Slater, Chef de Cuisine, and Kevin Delaune, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.
