Veal Parmigiana

LCSteiner Feb 28, 2012 10:40 AM

We will be in New Orleans next week, staying at the Roosevelt for 4 nights. I am wondering who in New Orleans has the best veal parmigiana? I realize that is a strange request for New Orleans, but I get tired of the typical NO food after a few days.

    I haven't had the Veal Parmigiana at 1179, but I've enjoyed everything I have had there.

      I just wish 1179 had house made pasta.

      If you’re longing for traditional New York-style Italian food, head over to Vincent’s on St. Charles. They make a good veal parm.

        Domenica, in the Roosevelt for Italian. Sauteed veal w/lemon, no parm. Daily HH, 1/2price wood fired pizza, beer, wine, well drinks. Great lasagna bolgonese (and I am not a lasagna fan). Service is usually lousy but now you know to expect that going in. A Mano onTchoup. also Italian but no parm. Maybe veal parm at Cafe Giovanni. Best bet there is to order the "feed me" tastimg menu.

        Not "your typical nola fare":
        Coquette, Lilette, Green Goddess,August, Le Foret, POC, The Three Muses, Rio Mar, La Boca, Stella!, Irene's Cuisine.

          As this is one of my favorite dishes, when done well, I will agree. Even with the kitchen working overtime, just for us, they came through 100% on my Veal Parmigiana, and on my wife's Chicken version. Really, really good, and in the upper 10% of all, that I have enjoyed.

          Good call,
