MiLa Restaurant Review: MiLa’s name is formed by joining the abbreviations for Mississippi and Louisiana. The setting in the Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette Hotel exudes a contemporary, hip vibe without being distracting. Before dinner, sit at the bar and enjoy light appetizers, such as tempura shrimp or gnocchi with Louisiana crawfish. Mains like crispy Cornish hen or smoked pork chops show off chef Benjamin Sarrat’s affinity for Southern home cooking. His black pepper tuna reveals there really is something original one can do with tuna. Everything ends on a fine note with a crème brûlée. The wine list leads with a good selection of Champagnes and sparkling wines, and offers numerous out-of-the-ordinary selections. Service is in step with the expectations of the high-end pricing.
