Bouligny Tavern Restaurant Review

: From the outside, Bouligny may look like a typical Garden District home, but inside the décor is strictly mid-twentieth-century, and the food is very “right now.” Chef John Harris’ casual wine bar and small-plates restaurant adjoins his fine dining bistro, Lilette. The menu features seared beef short ribs with garlic, Gouda beignets, Kobe pigs in a blanket with mustard, and duck confit with potatoes. For dessert, the chocolate crostini with olive oil pairs nicely with a red Burgundy. Harris, true to form, offers a well-thought-out, heavily French wine list, with about 15 wines by the glass and dozens more by the bottle. For a place as crowded as this, with people moving from room to room and even outside to the courtyard or the front porch, the service is surprisingly attentive and accurate.
