John Besh is a master of Creole cooking, but at Domenica, located in New Orleans’ Roosevelt Hotel (home of the original Sazerac), he’s proving that he’s also got a knack for Italian fare, but giving it his own unique kick. In this casual and elegant high-ceilinged dining room, chef Alon Shaya is serving 13 pizzas, including ones topped with Gorgonzola, apple, speck, pecans, roast pork shoulder, fennel sausage, and cotechino. There’s also a wide variety of house-cured meats, pastas including stracci with oxtail and fried chicken livers, and entrées that include a wood-oven goat shakshouka-style with a yard egg and tomato sauce and crispy chicken mostarda with creamy polenta and rosemary. Make sure you save room for desserts like banana cake with bananas, crema cotta mousse, and peanut brittle.. 



  • The dining room is homey and comfortable but, at the same time, feels forward-looking. Cocktails are some of the best in the city. [Eater 38 Member]
