THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Bar & Bistro at La Louisiane Restaurant Review

: The Bar & Bistro at La Louisiane is billed as a contemporary New Orleans bistro. It's a vague description but one that encompasses both its menu, which is based in a Creole aesthetic but reaches far and wide for contemporary inspiration, and the restaurant's 125-year history, which is full of New Orleanian romance, failure and intrigue. The conseillere de cuisine, Agnes Bellet, is a French chef who also oversees the kitchen at the adjacent Louis XVI. Here her menu is surprisingly un-stodgy; you'll find short ribs braised in Abita Turbo Dog beer, Mississippi rabbit braised in red wine and served over fettuccine, bourbon-marinated hanger steak and a romaine-and-asparagus salad dressed with lemon-tahini dressing. While the interior now includes a wall mural painted by the owner's mother and business partner, its original brickwork, natural cypress and gold leaf ceilings remain intact.
