  • Their menu is nomadic, the tips you see here are subject to constant change. Just know when you go, look at the current menu and experience the days offering.
  • My favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Bywater gen!
  • Nina Compton's supposedly more approachable menu here is no less creative than hers @ Compere Lapin. Don't miss: Charred Okra & the rice cooked in the shells/bones of the daily local seafood. Superb!
  • New place suggested by a friend and turned out to be phenomenal...not an eggplant fan but loved what they did with the mustard crusted mahi mahi on an eggplant "dip". Also try the rabbit curry!
  • Unique and eclectic menu... Had brunch there one Sunday and was very impressed!
  • Everything was fabulous. Very fresh ingredients, light and balanced dishes. Just wonderful!
  • Cabbage salad is incredible
  • Cabbage salad was incredible
  • The French toast is amazing. Try the Bloody Mary with gin, slight twist on a classic.
  • Rabbit curry
