A hefty slab of premium beef, almost two inches thick, oozing luscious juices and delivering robust flavor was easily the best dish we encountered in this Gallic variation on the American steakhouse, but texture and warmth aren't the kitchen's strong points. Stick to steak and potatoes and you may leave Châteaubriand with fonder memories of it than we did.

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chateaubriand Restaurant Review

: HURRICANE KATRINA: this establishment is currently closed. For a New Orleans Travel Update as well as resources, information and help click here. Châteaubriand's namesake steak is what you'd expect to get from the kitchen of a seasoned French veteran like proprietor-chef Gérard Crozier: A hefty slab of premium beef, almost two inches thick, oozing luscious juices and delivering robust flavor. It was easily the best dish we encountered in this Gallic variation on the American steakhouse. Customers are reminded of the restaurant's Franco-American inspirations by the main dining room's painted walls, suggesting aged stone and ringed with portraits of steers sporting berets. When beef isn't present on the white linen tablecloths, classicism rules. Hollandaise glosses the fresh asparagus. Tuna, brushed with butter, is respectably moist and gently grilled. But texture and warmth aren't the kitchen's strong points. On our visits, the bavarois was too gelatinous and short on flavor. Breaded veal offered neither snap nor crunch. So, stick to steak and potatoes and you may leave Châteaubriand with fonder memories of it than we did. Monday nights are corkage-free: Wine collectors may bring their own for no extra charge.
