Noodle & Pie Restaurant Review

: Can an entire restaurant be created around ramen noodles? That depends. Eman Loubier, who owns Dante’s Kitchen, believed it could. The result is Noodle & Pie, which began elsewhere as a pop-up and evolved into a standalone establishment in a space formerly occupied by Reginelli’s Pizza. Noodle & Pie's odd menu focuses on small plates, but the dishes offer flavors that could be challenging for some customers. Best examples? Fresh octopus and pickled shrimp salad; grilled sardines in tomato sauce with lime; curry fish cakes. While ramen enthusiasts might enjoy some of the noodle options, most New Orleanians crave spice, and these dishes come off a bit bland. Even the pies are unusual: bacon pecan with chocolate sauce anyone? Note that the noise level is quite high, there’s communal seating with backless benches, wines by the glass average about $10 each, and the beer selection is limited.
