THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Marigny Restaurant Review

: If a globe-hopping kitchen is your cup of tea, CafĂ© Marigny may be, too. This spacious, uncluttered spot two blocks beyond Esplanade Avenue, the French Quarter’s boundary, puts no geographic limits on its inspirations. Several continents sometimes are represented on the same plate. Duck, portobello mushrooms and sweet papers crown spinach linguine. A pungent, Asian-inspired sauce is ladled onto a thick pork chop. Tempura shrimp appear in the company of a wasabi aioli and a ginger-peach chutney. Grilled tuna rests on a colorful cluster of artichoke, tomato, basil and lentils. There’s a turkey chili and a creme brulee, as well. While some of the cooking is competent (the shrimp tempura are nearly textbook-perfect), the clash of tastes and textures is frequent. The aim seems to be to dazzle rather than to come up with logical, complementary flavors.
