charmed this yankee.
well worth the cab ride from our canal street hotel. all positive reviews on this site for a reason. able to get an interior table at 7:30 on a saturday with little notice. service was first class, and the food wasn't far behind. xlnt wine list too. wasn't impressed with the pianobar, personally.
The mood and the food to express yourself.. The Scene Feelings Cafe maintains the homey charm of its surroundings--the main house and slave quarters of the former D'Aunoy Plantation. A large dining area just inside the restaurant harbors a warm feel, thanks to candlelit tables covered in white and low music. Exposed brick, antique mirrors and paneling polish the effect. Across the hall, the narrow and colorful bar opens onto the tree-shaded courtyard.
The Food Appetizers like the flavorful but smooth pate a la maison or the meaty crab cakes aren't large, but they're also not expensive and won't spoil your appetite. Good news, given you don't want to miss a bite of the red snapper Moutarde--sauteed and topped with hollandaise, Dijon mustard and roasted almonds--or the blue cheese-stuffed filet. Veal, shrimp, duck and chicken dishes prepared in varying ways round out the entrees. Find room for the mocha chocolate cheesecake.
BEST KEPT SECRET IN NEW ORLEANS!.
I had never heard of this place until I read the reviews on citysearch.com. Everyone loved it so we gave it a try. This place as FANTASTIC. You MUST give it a try. Call ahead for reservations on the patio. The best deal on the menu is converting an entre into a four or five course meal for a very reasonable price. Try the egglplant seafood dish. It was OUTSTANDING. Friendly wait staff and a pleasant dining experience. In my book, this place nudge out NOLA for taste. Don't miss it!
The most romantic spot in town for fine dining. Try and get a spot on the patio or the balcony overlooking the courtyard. The bleu cheese fillet is my favorite. Musicians serenade as you dine. The setting is in the slave quaters of an old plantation.
