New Orleans Restaurants

Lilette

Updated 04/09/2014

Fodor's Review

Proprietor-chef John Harris uses French and Italian culinary traditions as springboards for Lilette's inspired dishes. Look for tomato soup with gnocchetti; panéed black drum with Israeli couscous, leeks, and tomatoes; and roasted muscovy duck breast with cauliflower, buttered breadcrumbs, and sauteed spinach. For dessert, the goat cheese quenelles with lavender honey are as light as sorbet but more satisfying. The wine list has been thoughtfully chosen. Framed mirrors

hang along the maroon walls of the intimate front dining room–cum–bar, and there are also a few tables filling out a second room and a heated patio.

A foodie sigh of relief

Absolutely loved this place. The staff are so gracious and the food is wonderful. Over 2 visits we loved the gnocchi, the confit duck, the beet and goatcheese salad, the steak frites, the muscovy duck and a fantastic peach tart - oh and the truffled mushroom toast was over the top rich and decadent. Good people, and great food experience.

Loved It!

Just had lunch here for the umpteenth time and as usual everything was outstanding. Charming atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable service, very appropriate wine list with interesting and affordable selections, and as always food that is inspired. Kudos to John Harris and his incredible staff.

Success has gone to his head

The food was phenomenal. But John Harris has to work on his staff, they are aloof, condescending and rude. The place is small, they usually overbook and a wait is mandatory. There is a small bar (4 seats) to wait at otherwise you have to ward off the West Nile biters outside in the heat and humidity. The Ritz Carlton concierge made my reservation 2 weeks in advance and I still had to wait an hour on a slow August Wednesday night. The wine list

is small but offers reasonably priced wines by the glass. The food was worth the wait.
