Annunciation Restaurant Review: Handsome canvas awnings shade the old stone building, while crisp white tablecloths and bistro chairs provide an inviting ambience within. Creole and Cajun inflections keep the menu true to the restaurant's intentions. When Louisiana crabs are in season, the fried soft-shell crab with crab meat meunière sauce and the spinach and artichoke risotto will vie for your affections. Or go classic Louisiana with the pork roulades with grits and gravy. The chef offers a selection of plates small, medium (we like the pan-seared veal sweetbreads) and large (shrimp etouffée is New Orleans all the way). End the meal with the chocolate pot de crème, but if you have never even imagined fudge brownie gelato, go for it, too. The wine list complements the menu; it's nice to see several crisp Sauvignon Blancs offered, since this grape pairs well with so much of the food.
