    The Roasted Muscovy duck was as good as any duck I’ve had in the south of France.

    Classic New Orleans bistro. The daily drum special is one of the best fish dishes in the city.

    Shockingly overrated. The "poulet" chicken was dry and tasteless and the accompanying sauce tasted like pure vinegar.

    The Italian wedding soup will leave wonderfully gooey bits of cheese you'll want to gnaw off your spoon.

    I think I will come back to NOLA just so I can eat here again. Really. Can give any SF restaurant a run for its money.
