So “the chef” heard about this new French restaurant on Magazine St. and we just had to try it! Of course, we were hungry for brunch, but after dining here we’ll have to come back for dinner.
Outside, the restaurant appears to be very casual and cutesy joint, but as you walk in, it has a French parlor feel. Very fancy, very elegant…Almost like I was in France at some local French bistro near the Eiffel tower. There was even French music playing…
Escargot. My favorite! Definitely a rich dish, filled with flavorful herbs and buttery goodness. I used the rest of the French bread to sop up the rest of the “sauce”. The escargot were plump and tender. Cooked to perfection!
Eggs Parisienne. Eggs Benedict..Truly authentic version. I’m not a big pea person, but it added a nice delicate touch to the dish.
Potatoes Au Gratin. When I saw this on the menu, I just had to get it. I was slightly disappointed when I didn’t get the good ol’ country style potatoes au gratin, but this was very light and delicate and just as you would expect from a born and raised French chef.
Pork Forestiere Crepe. Oven-roasted Pork. Mushroom red wine sauce. Pulled pork was great…Very flavorful. Great for the New Orleanian palate.
I definitely enjoyed the dishes here and can’t wait to try their dinner menu and the mussels (They were out this time =( ). Gotta love French cuisine! Til next time, au revoir!
