Marigny Brasserie Restaurant Review: Frenchmen Street now rivals the French Quarter for its diversity of food offerings, but Marigny Brasserie has survived the comings and goings of many of its nearby competitors. If you like small plates, you’ll find such treats as boudin balls with spicy rémoulade sauce, steamy hot meat pies and a nice presentation of a local favorite, char-broiled oysters. Entrées emphasize regional flavors such as crawfish pasta, shrimp etouffée, and red beans and rice. A nice assortment of po’ boys and other sandwiches is included, with the standout being an alligator and andouille sausage combo. Local favorites also figure in such desserts as the bananas Foster. The large front bar is always a lively scene, where you can order anything from the menu. The wine list is well thought out and nicely organized, featuring such predictable selections as the standard Kendall Jackson Chardonnay or La Crema Pinot Noir. But there are some fine surprises, as well, such as a rich Argentinean Malbec and a peppery Chilean Cabernet. The list is international in scope, and offers a respectable by-the-glass selection.
