Cafe Marigny

Has anyone heard of this restaurant? Is is good? great?? A friend went there just before Katrina and said it was one of the best meals she had in NO. It may not still be there or may have new owners.

  1. It's now Marigny Brasserie. Be afraid, be very afraid. It used to be really good but the format has changed to pretty much right off the Sysco truck. I can't say that I blame them, they're now doing great business but if you want good food on Frenchmen Street, get thee to Three Muses for small plates. Daniel Esses actually was a chef at MB for a while when it was good.

      My friend will be disappointed. She thought it was the best meal she had in NO.
      someone else recommended Three Muses, so we will give that a try for music and dinner.

        My personal experience is was pretty good. Recently, by all accounts.....suckage.

    2. it's been awful the past couple years, since the owned lost their last exec chef and adopted a generic menu. and yet, as noted, they're doing better than I've seen in a long while. don't get it. Sad, such a prime location in a food city.
