Cleopatra Mediterranean Cuisine Restaurant Review: Cleopatra's menu of farm-raised halal meats draws customers from across the metro area. The restaurant's interior is elegant, overlaid with white linens that bask in the dim glow of beaded Syrian chandeliers. Consistently well-prepared food and the warmth of a family-owned enterprise make Cleopatra worth the considerable drive from downtown New Orleans. Patrons may enjoy grilled and spit-roasted lamb, beef and chicken prepared with above-average results. Pita bread is baked in-house and might be some of the best in the area; it’s served warm, its surface roughened with flour, the body puffed and bready. Stuffed grape leaves, soups and crisp salads give vegetarians something to savor. Baklava and a lemon cake will vie for your attention at dessert time.
