    Like New Orleans itself, the kitchen (under daily direction from chef de cuisine Rebecca Wilcomb) borrows from a grab bag of cultures and somehow arrives at an elegant crossroad. Read more

    New American cuisine in a classic atmosphere. Great service and dishes that are a combination of local flavored and French techniques. Nominated for a Janes Beard award. Try the fresh fish selection.

    Order the gumbo of the day (whatever it may be), housemade spaghetti w/ guanciale & fried poached egg, the amazing Muscovy duck leg confit and the banana brown butter tart for dessert. Flawless menu!

    Attire is smart casual. Don't anticipate the fanciest presentation, but you can expect crazy delicious food, with some of the best desserts in town.

    This is a fantastic play on carbonara. It's one of those instances where a chef not only changes a dish, but evolves it into something greater. Just wait 'til you crack open that egg. Read more

    We had a lovely decadent lunch and hated to leave. Great wine list by the glass. Incredible dishes that are small so you can try a few. Favorites were the homemade pasta with egg on top.

    Donald Link’s flagship restaurant has earned accolades since it opened its doors. Their gumbos and soups are standouts and the fresh salads come decorated with seasonal ingredients.

    The fish of the day was amazing. Swordfish with cauliflower purée. I wanted seconds. Plus the wine list was great and the music playing was perfect.

    Pair the chocolate malted mousse dessert with the Old Rasputin Imperial Stout. Nicely complimenting dessert / beer pairing.

    Get the spaghetti for a small plate. The house-made pasta really brings it home . Overall, the service is exceptional- the best I've had in NOLA.

    Quite possibly our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. We celebrated our second consecutive anniversary evening here. The spaghetti with egg was outstanding.

    Get a table outside on a cool evening and sample as many small plates as you can. Very memorable spot for a casual romantic date. +1 on cocktails as well.

    Chocolate-pudding cake with house-made cashew ice cream is a nice finish. Big windows on two sides makes it feel like you're sitting outside on St. Charles & Girod.

    Started with a Mexican firing squad cocktail. Had a nice wine with spaghetti w/guanciale and fried poached egg. Perfect everything thoughtfully prepared.

    The fish of the day was perfectly poached, the flourless chocolate cake was outstanding. Solid wine list and a great G&T.

    Schedule a reservation if you don't want to contend with the local business and law crowd. Great for a business lunch or for anyone in from out of town. Along the street car route.

    Try the spaghetti starter. It's like spaghetti alla carbonara, but with a fried poached egg. Genius.

    Unbelievably good food! By popular review, tried the house-made spaghetti w/guinciale & fried-poached egg - awesome! And I can't get over how flavorful the shrimp & pancetta Gideon is! We'll be back!

    Loved the delicate, flavorful watermelon gazpacho with crab meat; gnocchi; and decadent pudding cake. The fries with aioli are amazing, too.

    If you want for a meal with a major wow factor, this is the place to get it. Try the Louisiana Crab, the Arugula Salad, and the Gnocchi.

    My best item last night: rabbit fricasse with pasta. Full flavor but unique and complex. Not your average pasta dish.

    Shrimp with bacon and corn arancini is a big fave -- ask for the arancini as a side dish even if you choose something else, they are spectacular!
