  1. I was looking for the same information. I went to the Harrah's New Orleans website, and I'm a little confused. Besh's Steakhouse in the casino is described as a $$ on the affordability scale. From everything I've read, that steakhouse is extremely expensive.

    Riche gets a $$$$ rating on the same scale. So either the rating for Besh's steakhouse is off, or Riche is priced solely to appeal to high rollers.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, and get some first-hand information about Riche.

      I can't remember where I read this (read it recently too)but the entrees run about $20 - been to Besh's and his entrees are a bit more. Think Harrah's website screwed up. I went to Todd's own website and none of his restaurants have entrees in the $40 range which is $$$$. The menu for Riche is not on his website yet.

    2. I called Riche and they are oopned for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner every day of the week.

      7:30 to 10:30 a.m.
      11:30 to 2:30 p.m.
      5 to 10:30 p.m.

      1. I went last weekend but only had appetizers. The place is shockingly hip! The food was very good and the atmosphere lively. The whole set up is fascinating. There is an elegantly lighted courtyard with flowers and a live music bar next door. The restaurant has a decidedly french feel to it with dover sole and fois gras. It was busy last Friday night so I assume there is a buzz.

        1. Walked through on Friday, looked like the entrees were 5-10$, and the plats were 18-30$. Besh is expensive and not nearly as elegant as August.

          1. Went to Riche for breakfast three times last week while staying at Harrah's. Food was outstanding and very affordable. Just slightly above the price of the Harrah's buffet and much, much better.
