Domenica Restaurant Review

: Although The Roosevelt New Orleans is all old-world glamour, its signature restaurant, Domenica, is contemporary, sleek and minimalist. Among the all-Italian repertoire, the standout offering is thin-crusted pizza baked in a state-of-the-art wood-burning oven with a rotating stone deck. The most popular are the “Prosciutto,” featuring tomato, fresh mozzarella and arugula, and the “Bolzano” with roast pork shoulder, fennel, bacon and sweet onions. The traditionally inspired menu also includes antipasti like roasted cauliflower with whipped goat feta as well as octopus carpaccio with fennel and citrus. Try the seasonal gnocchi with locally sourced duck, almonds, cream and herbs. Chefs John Besh and Alon Shaya focus on serving as many local products as possible, including fish straight from the Gulf of Mexico. Much thought is put into the wine list, which offers selections that complement the highly seasoned food. Desserts may include a chocolate hazelnut pudding with candied hazelnuts. Get to Domenica between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. every day to enjoy all pizzas, well cocktails, beers and wines by the glass for half price.
