THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Noble Bistro Restaurant Review: The live sound of easy-listening piano music can be a bit jarring in a restaurant with a sushi bar, but Noble Bistro rarely plays by the rules practiced in Japanese restaurants. Sitting cheek-by-jowl on the menu are tempura dishes and tiny lamb chops, their flavor and succulence underscored by a light and lovely brown sauce. The contemporary décor of the split-level dining room and large bar, with hardly a hint of Japanese influence, is as classy as youll find along Metairie Road. Waiters take orders with studied calm, before delivering broiled seafood drizzled with an aïoli sauce in a tangle of fresh greens, and flawless shellfish and vegetables in tempura. The kitchen occasionally overestimates its creative abilities, and consequently the menu can be more interesting than the food itself. Diners not in the mood to experiment should opt for sushi.
