New Orleans – 11/22/15 – Coquette, Erin Rose , and Tableau

Coquette
Continued evidence that so much of the great stuff in NOLA now can be found on Magazine street.  An absolutely fantastic brunch (even if the beef didn’t photograph well) and I will certainly return on my next visit.

negroni sbagliato – campari, sweet vermouth, sparkling wine
cinnamon roll

cobia crudo – satsuma, hibiscus, jalapeño

beef cheek, stone ground oats, scallion, poached egg

sweet potato tart, molasses chantilly, salted pecans

Erin Rose
It was an absolutely freezing day and the infamous irish coffee definitely hit the spot. Thanks Bobby for the recommendation!


Tableau
I ended up at Tableau after compromising on to-do lists with a travel companion. When I walked in it appeared to be full of tourists, the lighting was dreadful and my initial thought was to walk out. But without another reservation I stayed. I wish i could remember what my entree was but it was a special and photographed poorly and for the life of me I can’t tell. I can’t say it was bad but not a good use of limited days in the city.

Crabmeat Ravigote – local jumbo lump crabmeat, lemon aioli, marinated grilled tomato, lavash
