Fodor's Review

"New World" is the label Louisiana native Susan Spicer applies to her cooking style, and resulting delicious dishes include the goat cheese crouton with mushrooms in madeira cream, a Bayona specialty, or the Caribbean pumpkin soup with coconut. A legendary favorite at lunch is the sandwich of smoked duck, cashew peanut butter, and pepper jelly. The imaginative dishes on the constantly changing menu are served in an early-19th-century Creole cottage that glows with flower arrangements, elegant photographs, and trompe-l'oeil murals suggesting Mediterranean landscapes. Don't skip the sweets, like a chocolate-bourbon panna cotta or mango cheesecake flan with pistacchio crust.

bad info in the Fodor's guide

To start off, after making a reservation 3 weeks in advance for a Susan Spicer experience we ended up seated at the absolute WORST table in the place. We were the 2nd party in the restaurant and were seated next to the wait staff entrance. An early reservation means nothing to these people. The highly (and overpriced wine list) had wines that had been out of stock for weeks. The place was over the top loud to the point that conversing was not

possible with your dining companion. Despite the Fodor's review about no cell phones apparently that doesn't include checking Facebook and email. The delivery of the wine seemed like an afterthought. The bread other than a great sweet potato roll was stale. We have already eaten at The Palace Café and the Commander's Palace and they made this place look like it is definitely second rate. You need to lower your review on this. It should NOT be a Fodor's choice! Just to let you know, we have eaten in restaurants rated by your guide from Napa to Charleston to Montreal. This was a huge disappointment!
