THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Les Fleurs de Lis Creole Eatery Restaurant Review

: Tiny (32-seat) gaslight-styled and lined with Toulouse Lautrec posters, Les Fleurs de Lis is a downtown jewel ensconced in one of the city's finest old commercial buildings, now rendered a residential condominium. Lunch focuses on Creole fare, including gumbo, etouffée, po' boys, crawfish pie, chicken-and-praline salad with buttermilk dressing, and sweet potato praline pie and bread pudding for dessert. Check out the blue plate special for lunch, which could include such dishes as crawfish ravioli or duck lasagna, the latter a meld of sweet duck meat, cheese and tomato. On Friday night, consider the seven-to-ten-course tasting dinner with wine pairings directed by a sommelier, Brady Lowe, a local wine-and-cheese guru. Robinson cooks everything himself. Dinner is available only on Friday nights and only by reservation. Bring in your own wine if you wish; no corkage is charged.
