Cafe Amelie Restaurant Review

: Many New Orleans restaurants offer al fresco dining, but visitors walking along Royal Street literally stop in their tracks when they pass the open gate leading to Café Amelie’s lush courtyard. On the menu, an assortment of small plates includes a stand-out crab cake, and there are generously portioned sandwiches for lunch --- try the cochon de lait on ciabatta. Dinnertime brings entrées such as lamb meatloaf and a skillet-roasted duck breast with sweet potatoes. Desserts are tempting, especially the nine-layer lemon blueberry Doberge cake. The inviting bar is a relaxing place for enjoying one of the wines by the glass from a nicely balanced and well-maintained international list. Children get special attention with tables and chairs appropriately sized for them, but highchairs are not available.
