"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.
