I have not been to Lilette since before Katrina. How is it? Any recommendations? Thinking of going there for a special anniversary. Thanks!
ditto...my lunch was perfection:
Braised veal cheeks with mixed greens and horseradish vinaigrette
Braised pork belly with tomato-cucumber-basil salad and garlic bread
Coq au vin with mushrooms, red wine, bacon and croutons
Quenelles of goats cheese crème fraiche with poached pears, pistachios, and lavender honey
Haven't been there in one year (on my last trip to New Orleans), but we had an excellent meal, and plan on returning next month.
The only real knock I've heard about Lilette is that the restaurant's menu hasn't really changed since before Katrina. Not 100% accurate, but there's some justification. The thing is, the menu as it exists is popular for a reason. There's not really a weak link.
I dig the place, personally, but I do wish he'd throw a few curves at some point.
