Any recent info/opinions on Le Foret's tasting menu? Price, courses, experiences, are wine pairings offered yet?

    I was actually poking around for any comments, especially considering NO Mag's ranking. We're doing our annual (well, often it's 3x per year) trip over from The Valley of The Sun, and found the article curious in a very good way.

    i wondered why there was not more CH chatter about it, so I was digging about to see what I must have missed.

    Hope that the locals will weigh in, as I am curious too.

      Bill, we have so many great new restaurants and Le Foret is one of them. I've tried a lot of the new ones lately and found two slightly better than Le Foret, although I don't think you will be disappointed with any of them. Le Meritage and Meson 923. All three, however, are restaurants that could be in any city, not that there is anything wrong with that. Many of the newer restaurants are steering away from the typical French/New Orleans cuisine and each one seems to be one-upping the next. They are also starting to get very pricey, but these three, at least in my opinion, are worth the price.

        Thank you for that. Having grown up in the "shadows" of NOLA, I have had wonderful NOLA fare. Having married "smart," and a NOLA native, I have had even more.

        At my advanced age, it's about the restaurant, and my food. I am not a culinary historian, and, while I do love NOLA cuisine, if some chef tickles my fancy, I am not a critic, regardless of where the restaurant is located.

        In London, we do more classic French, than pure British, though I do have a great rec. for that too. Much of the rest is truly "international cuisine," regardless of the city.
