They are extending Restaurant Week, the menu looks interesting and I was wondering if anyone has been there. Couldn't find much doing a search. Thanks

    A few of my friends went in January and said it was very good for RW.

    I'm hoping to try it sometime next week because I absolutly love that place. If you are going to go make sure you or someone you are with gets the tuna sliders. I really enjoyed them when I was there for Happy Hour a few months ago.

        Just went last night! The space is really pretty....and our waiter was really nice. They are only offering the Restaurant Week menu, nothing else. I had the Tuna Sliders I had heard so much about. Very cute presentation, and they were tasty. I think the "idea" is good...but I think Tuna Tartare is better with a chip or cracker, rather than the little rolls. For my main, I had the "Steak and Potatoes." It's a hangar steak, which I thought was flavorful, served with 2 "crispy" potato gnocci. Ok, I had high expectations for crispy gnocci, but they looked like a flattened chicken nugget and were just ok tasting. Not bad at all, just ok. For dessert, I tried the Black Forest Mousse Cake. It was good and chocolately, but not exceptional at all. Kind of forgettable.

        All in all.....I enjoyed myself, but don't think I will be rushing back there. There are a lot of other good restaurants to try!

          I was at PS7's for RW last Tuesday and thought it was great. Good service, great food, and nice selection. I had the scallops for my entree and my husband had the veal breast and sweetbreads--both were delicious. You can read my review in my blog:

            I went last night as well- it was good but def not exceptional. The tuna sliders were very good. My boyfriend had the duck appetizer and said it was good but did not enjoy the hangar steak at all- it was very chewy and just not too appetizing. The salmon was good but again, not exceptional. A friend had the chicken breast and said it was wonderful. If you go, do get the peach cobbler and beignets- those were pretty good. The only thing that stands out and I will remember is the buscuits they serve before the meal- those were very tasty. Overall, I'd say- 6.5 out of 10...good but would not pay the full price for the food.

              yes...had the mussels (good) the veal (fantastic) and the peach crisp (a great finish) Also enjoyed a great glass or two of wine from a pretty decent selection. Our waiter was friendly and the atmosphere was upscale. My husband and I will return, RW or not!

              Enjoyed our RW lunch at PS 7. The bread came out hot and delicious, although the rolls were better than the biscuits, in my opinion. Maybe I'm just spoiled by Acadiana's biscuits. Tuna sliders, Sarah's salad, tomato/mozzarella salad all were quite good, although the Sarah's salad was very small - I'm not a big eater, and it was only about 4 bites even for me. Entrees - we had the Hot Brown turkey sandwich, the king salmon, and BATM (bacon/tomato/mozzarella on foccacia, although I asked for it w/o bacon to make it vegetarian) - all quite tasty, but very rich. The sides tended to be a large pile of slightly wilted greens, too lightly dressed for me. Kind of flavorless so I left them on the plate. Dessert - beignets were good, as is the peach crisp. The service was pleasant and efficient too.

              I think it's a bit expensive at their regular prices, given the portion size. At RW prices however, it's quite a deal.

              It's also a nice spot for drinks / happy hour, because the lounge area is a relaxing place to hang out and not usually overly crowded.

                Do you know if you can get the RW menu in the lounge area?

                I'm heading there tomorrow night and probably will just stick to the lounge menu (so affordable!) but I might be more hungry and want the full RW experience. Wasn;t sure if you could order from the full or RW menu there though.

                  I just wanted to report that 3 of us went there Thursday night and thoroughly enjoyed our RW dinner. Two of us had the beet salad (they were out of our original choice of the duck confit) and it was a lovely presentation although it could have had a few more beets. The other diner enjoyed a generous portion of the mussels. For a main course, we had scallops, the chicken breast,and the veal. We all finished off our plates. Two of us had the peach crisp and the other the beignets. As a previous individual mentioned, the pre-dinner bread was excellent. A very good wine list with options of smaller pours so several wines could be tried. I would definitely return.

                  I went on Wednesday night. The highlights of the meal were the bread and the cocktails. The tuna sliders are pretty clever, but I think I prefer my tuna without a bun. Veal breast and sweet breads was a very generous portion, perhaps slightly over salted. I think I would have liked this dish a lot in the winter, but it didn't really make sense in the summer. My companion's steak was not the greatest and desserts were forgettable. I can definitely see myself returning for happy hour, but not for dinner.

                    The Happy Hour there is excellent! I actually was there on Weds as well and got the tuna sliders. I thought the parker house buns were really tasty so they added something different to the tuna tartar. They def. have incredible bread products there. I high point is their bread basket.
