Seasoned restaurateur Ralph Brennan has matched this beautifully renovated historic building with a menu that mixes contemporary Creole standbys with innovative twists. The culinary staff excels with full-flavored seafood dishes like the fried smoked oysters and a variety of fresh fish. By all means, try the rib-eye wrapped scallops. For Sunday brunch, which even has a kids menu, the lobster and tasso eggs Benedict and the chicken and waffles with boudin balls will remind
you that you're way down in Louisiana. The solid wine list is always evolving. The bar, where you can order the full menu, looks out on the oaks of City Park and has become a virtual public clubhouse for nearby residents.
