Ft. Greene: New Orleans restaurant
Has anyone been to the Restaurant New Orleans on DeKalb Ave/South Portland? I've been there several times now and have fallen in love with it. The menu is limited (classic dishes: gumbo, etoufee, etc.) and the service is sometimes slow, but in a relaxed manner. You almost feel like you are down south. Not to mention the French Quarter decor and cozy gas fireplace.
The food is very fresh and feels like home-cooking. The bourbon rice is fantastic. Also, the prices are very reasonable and entrees come with a free glass of wine. However, wine snobs might want to BYOB.
I'm curious to hear other opinions--I really feel like it's overlooked in the neighborhood.
I waited there over two hours for a chicken entree. Eventually half my party had to leave. It was the slowest service I've ever experienced, hands down (kitchen's fault; not the waitress). We were the only party in there. Twilight Zone. Although I live a block away, I've never been back. But here's the best part: the chicken was delicious.
