"Had the organic ribeye and it was wonderful. The arugula salad was outstanding. A little loud but that is part of the experience. Will certainly go back when we are in the mood for a steak."

Domenica is a contemporary and inviting Italian restaurant that creates regional Italian dishes with southern and middle eastern influences. The cuisine combines Chef Alon Shaya's Israeli heritage and love of local ingredients with a menu that reflects his time spent cooking and living in the small towns of northern Italy.

MiLa is the culmination of both the marriage of chefs Slade Rushing and Allison Vines-Rushing and their respective home states cuisines Mississippi and Louisiana. With a heavy emphasis on provisions sourced from regional farmers, MiLa fuses traditional Southern classics with fresh and surprising ingredients. Dine in an elegant yet relaxed dining room in downtown New Orleans.

"Went there on 4.4.14 and the food was awesome. We both had the fried oyster salad that was superb. It wasn't a salad dressed up with a few fried oysters thrown on top. The oysters were worked into the texture of the salad. Just great. I had the sauteed drum with Vadouvan spices (french curry) that was outstanding. These people really know what they are cooking."

Hakkasan is recognized as the pioneering concept that single-handedly changed the face of Chinese cuisine within the United Kingdom. Since 2003, the Michelin starred London location has set the standard for Chinese cuisine and haute Chinois interior design. Hakkasan at Fontainebleau features traditional Cantonese classics and house specialties reinterpreted for a contemporary, non-conventional palate. <br /><br />To complement our wine list, there is a $30 corkage fee (per 750 ML) for two bottles and $70 for any additional bottle (per 750 ML).

"Went there for brunch and ordered off the menu instead of the brunch menu. It was $85+ dollars for 4 courses and one beer. The noodles were $18 and I get the same quantity and better quality at my local Dim Sum restaurant for $7. The waitress knew nothing about Oriental food and couldn't pour a beer. (I had to hold the glass for her.) She treated us like this was our first time ordering Dim Sum. We asked what was in the salt and pepper ribs and she had no idea and was uninterested in finding out. Finally we asked one of the servers and he did not know but at least he found out. We have eaten Dim Sum in Hong Kong, Chinatown-NYC, San Francisco, Vancouver and New Orleans. All were better. Much better value and quality of food."

"Had a great meal. The vegetables were outstanding. Could be a vegetarian if I was able to eat Coquette's vegetable dishes all the time."

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."

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. Beautiful banquettes &amp; blood-red walls create a romantic ambience for you to enjoy the culinary styles of Food &amp; Wine&#39;s &#39;Best New Chef&#39;, John Harris

"My wife and I took a friend to Lilette on Saturday (1.25.15) and the food was tremendous. Getting to be that I must have the sizzling shrimp each time I go. Always a wonderful meal."

"We think MiLA is one of the top five restaurants in New Orleans. Last couple times we have been there it has been awesome. The chicken entree is wonderful as are the salads and soups. Never a bad dish here."
