Dining room at THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cuvee, New Orleans, LA


: The addition of chef Isaac Toups has allowed Cuvée to continue the respected culinary tradition for which this restaurant is known. For starters, try the Deux Fois Gras, featuring the chef’s daily preparation, plus a foie gras brûlée. Most of the menu changes frequently, though entrées remain fairly straightforward, including items such as smoked duck breast, ahi, filet mignon, cider-braised pork shank, and sea scallops. Admirable wine service supports the cellar that balances familiar labels with well-selected, little-known wines that add adventure to the experience. Couched inside the historic Board of Trade building, Cuvée strikes a romantic mood with its exposed-brick walls and burnished woods; overhead, Jeroboams and Methuselahs of classic Champagnes hang in wrought-iron cradles. It's a warm environment when the dining room is full and the wine is flowing, but on a slow night the service staff's stiffness tends to dampen the fun.

New Orleans Dining

Cuvee has a new chef, Kristen Olsen. I haven't read anything about her or her food. Has anyone else experienced Cuvee lately?
Best Haute Cuisine in New Orleans

Cuvee's cuisine is inspired, breathtaking, savory, and unique. The chef takes the best from the top restaurants around the country and infuses it with the soul of New Orleans. Hands-down, the best the city has to offer of fine dining.
Restaurant Cuvée, the best in New Orleans!

I have to say, i have dined in lots of places. But Cuvée is a step above the rest. From the service, the wine, and lets not forget the food. Chef Bob Iacovone is amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
