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.

Fantastic food. Best meal of the year for us. One of the top five meals of my life. The chef is a genius. Plain and simple. Dining room (ambience, staff, service) experience first rate. Refined but unassuming.

The food was well plated and thoughtful. The atmosphere made it feel like you were hundreds of miles off B-street. Recommend this place to anyone looking for a refined local cuisine. I showed up in jeans an flats with a leather jacket and felt a little out of place- so definitely want to get a little dressier.

What a treat for lunch! We ordered off the prix fix menu which is such a bargain.. But one main entrée was much smaller than the other (rabbit ravioli). The fish was cooked wonderfully. We weren't stuffed but it was great to sample some of the chef's creations. The staff is so polite and attentive. Hope to make it back for dinner one day.
