Baie Rouge Restaurant Review: Neighborhood restaurants are a staple along bustling Magazine Street in Uptown New Orleans. Situated behind a simple storefront, Baie Rouge has minimalist décor and offers a rather limited menu, but the selections are diverse enough to attract the masses. Consider the "Pig Dip," a house signature sandwich that combines pork debris with caramelized onions and garlic aïoli on French bread; it’s one of only five or six sandwich offerings. There are a few entrées, too, the best of which may be the shrimp risotto milanese with haricots verts. In a fine dining restaurant this dish would be pricey, but here it costs less than $15. Complete your experience with an elegantly presented pear and almond tart that can hold its own with desserts from some of the best pastry chefs in town. Baie Rouge does not serve liquor, but the owners are working on that.
