Gautreau's Restaurant Review

: Housed in a quaint old structure located in a residential neighborhood off the traditional culinary path, Gautreau’s has made great strides in capturing the attention that higher profile restaurants enjoy. New Orleans’ French heritage is nicely represented in the understated bistro-like ambience. Chef Sue Zemanick’s distinctive cooking style is evident in the seasonal menu: seared sea scallops with sage brown butter; sautéed halibut with spicy beurre blanc; Black Angus filet with bordelaise sauce; and herb-crusted rack of lamb. For dessert, look for the blackberry shortcake with Meyer lemon cream. The wine list is selective but diverse, with at least a dozen options by the glass. The restaurant’s cheerful service is as unaffected as the atmosphere. So, when should you consider Gautreau’s? First date, anniversary, birthday, family dinner, or anytime you simply feel the need for sensory pampering.

Really a Hidden GEM
by spudly on Thu Jul 24, 2008 1:08 pm
Located off of St. Charles Ave. near the Garden District this quaint but urbane gem has a long history of superb inventive creole/southern cuisine no matter who the chef. This is due for the most part to the maitre'd Patrick who has overseen the management of the restaurant since it's inception.

If this restaurant had been located in the French Quarter it would be acclaimed around the world. Those of us who love it are glad it is not.

If you are visiting New Orleans be sure to put this place on your list.
