Louisiana fare in a 200-year-old cottage
American · French Quarter · $$$
The Zagat Review
Chef Susan Spicer "never disappoints" at this "long-standing sparkler" in the French Quarter, where "sublime" Contemporary Louisiana fare is prepared with "innovative tweaks" and paired with an "amazing" wine list whose "sole purpose" is to complement the food; "thoughtful, personalized" service is part of the "high-end" package, helping to ensure that whether diners opt for the cottage's "intimate" interior or the "charming courtyard" , "every aspect of the experience is memorable."

Went here for their lunch special, and was thoroughly impressed. My in-laws are fans of Susan Spicer, and really wanted us to experience it. Sadly, it was too cool to enjoy the courtyard. I tried all the dishes served at the table, and they all were great: BBQ shrimp, steak, duck ‘PB&J’, and what I ordered, the sheepshead (pictured; not just a card game played in WI). Come at lunch to dine finely for less.

Tonight's visit to Bayona was simply wonderful. The weather was perfect for dinner in the courtyard and the staff made us feel welcome and tended to our every need without exception. They were there when needed and tending to others while we enjoyed the tasty treats from the kitchen. A lovely start to the evening. Thanks SS and team.

As always, Batons delivered creative food in lovely setting. Garlic soup was velvety and delicious. The rabbit was prepared two ways, stuffed and crisp fried with a delectable sauce. I ended the meal with a perfectly portioned peanut butter pie and caramelized bananas that was divine. Unfortunately, the room was incredibly loud and service a bit inattentive, both of which detracted from an otherwise outstanding meal.
