John Besh's "rarified" CBD flagship is a "masterpiece" whose "beautiful" , "Gone With the Wind" –style interior and "invisible but omnipresent" staff set the scene for a "genuine dining experience" focused around a "wonderfully creative" French menu with a "NOLA twist" (it also boasts "sublime" wine pairings); the "cost is high" for the "memorable experience" , but fans say it's "worth the splurge" ; P.S. Friday lunch is a "great deal."

Insider Tip
Though it's not as popular as his meat-centric "Degustation" menu, the vegetarian tasting menu is an exciting display of chef John Besh's skill.

There is a regular menu and then two five-course menus--one with meat, one vegetarian. Prices are extremely high. Five-course with wine flight, tax and tip for one person will be over $200. Wines were exceptional. Wait staff is extremely knowledgeable, professional and attentive. Food sounded interesting. My gosh dish and friend's scallops were surprisingly salty. Others said octopus and duck were very good. Desserts were also salty. For this price, I would go elsewhere.

This was a gastronomic feast and a dynamite experience delivered by all staff, especially Robert. The dining experience was relaxed and at the same time very upscale and unobtrusive. Robert's knowledge of how items were prepared and what to expect from each dish was spot on! From the moment you taste the amuse-bouche you realize you're in for something special. Every dish was like an exquisite "Iron Chef" like episode. Thank you and the staff for an amazing dining experience!

I’d consider this more of an experience than a meal. Robert was impeccable at bringing the menu to life, and helping to ensure we were comfortable with our selections. From there, everything was perfectly executed on, from appetizer to desert, and even the drink pairings. The plates were smaller, however, I was quite full since the flavours were so rich. Great place to take your significant other, would highly recommend!
