New good restaurants that have opened in the past year

I belive mIla opened a couple yrs back as well as the bourcherie section of cochon. any others that are noteworthy?

has dunbars' reopened?

is there anywhere to uggie-style cooking?

and there was a restaurant that served weired, contintental cuisine stuff like shark bacon is that still around?

lastly, has anyone been to Kpaul's or Brigsten's or Emeril's recently?

and is Mosca's a doable taxi ride from the quarter or wharehouse district? and can a solo diner go there and still have a great experience (i previously believed it was more family style???)

thanks for the help.

  1. I have been to Mosca's as a single diner and enjoyed it. The crab salad is good as well as the chicken and pineapple cake for dessert. Take plenty of cash because they do not accept plastic. I have had good experiences at Emeril's and K-Paul's as a single diner. I was not as comfortable at Brigsten's although I did like it. Dunbar's relocated to the Loyola University Law School. I have been to a lot restaurants in New Orleans alone and always have a good time.

      1. re: edible complex

        We dined at Tony Angeolo's last Thurs. We each had the 8 course dinner (inexpensive at $30pp). While nothing was terrific, nothing was bad. Red gravy/sauce is mediocre at best.

      2. Was at K-Paul's a couple weeks ago. See my lengthy write-up near the end of this trip report:

        1. We dine at Emeril's on average 4-5 times a month. Food and service always excellent. IMO, Mosca's is not worth the ride.

          1. new places ive enjoyed and readily recommend: Green Goddess, Boucherie, Patois, Coquette, Rambla.

            mosca's is about 30 mins from the quarter, and i wouldnt pay cab fare for it. or really go unless somebody else was paying..
