Great higher end lunch spot for those Fridays. The food is unique and will be coming back to try their other options. One thing to note is that the lunch menu seems to be different than their dinner menu. The lunch menu entrees are serving more lunch orientated food like sandwiches, burgers, but does have the gumbo (no pork chop or stuffed quail as I was hoping). The service is great as well with a very personable waiter that checked on us and was prompt with refills and the check. I will come back again to try their dinner selections.

Interesting space attached to Le Méridien, but thankfully it doesn't give off the "hotel restaurant" vibe. Good range of original and classic cocktails, decent beer selection, and quite a wine list. Menu is arranged by number instead of name, but progresses as you would expect: lite bites up top, larger apps, soup/salad, on to entrees then desserts. Seafood is their strong point as the dry aged steak my wife got was not anything special, though it was still cooked properly. Definitely worth checking out!

Small menu. Medium cooked burger had excellent bacon and grilled onions, bit cooked medium well. Tea was strong. I'll likely return to see if I can get a better meal, but there was really only one item I was interested in ordering. Several Louisiana named dishes but not accurate such as the rabbit soup called a gumbo and the dirty rice that looks more like a Spanish rice with large chunks of meat.
