Wondering about Delachaise. And Green Goddess.

Thinking ahead to a trip to New Orleans in a few months. Last time we went to Delachaise and loved it. Kind of quirky with really good food. We really enjoyed it. I heard that the chef who was there when we visited has left. How is the place now? Still good?

We heard the chef went to Green Goddess? How is that place at night? Recommended?

Also wondering about other things in a similar vein.

Any thoughts for us?

  1. We went to Green Goddess last weekend and enjoyed it. It's small and gets crowded but if you go on the early side you should be able to get a table.

    1. Pains me to say it, but the Delachaise has gone way downhill recently. Last time I was there, they substituted out 3 of 4 cheeses (they were out of the one's I picked) and the fries which are usually dependable were soggy. The bartender told me that the cheeses were "out of season" which was sad, if it wasn't the funniest thing I'd heard in awhile. The best thing on the old menu, the grilled cheese is no longer available...I was told that the porter cheese was no longer available. Of course you can still buy it at lots of places in town... Just lazy. The twice cooked pork is very good though, if you wind up there. Not much of it, but very tasty.

      1. I was at both places in November and had great food at each of them. Actually, they're two of my favorite places in town.

        1. GG is great, but small and a bit too expensive for lunch. chris, the chef you mentioned, does dinner service.

          if you search the forum you will find some reviews.

          1. I did a review on Green Goddess about 2-3 weeks ago.
