Noodle & Pie Restaurant Review: Do not expect anything ordinary at Noodle & Pie. Hard stools, instead of comfortable chairs, supply seating, and you'll eat at hardwood tables. Lightbulbs hang from the ceiling, and are reflected on the floor that’s some sort of aquamarine hard surface. The noise level is quite high. Meanwhile, the odd menu is composed of small and full size versions of its items, with dishes offering flavors that some customers might find challenging. Best examples? Chinese green onion pancakes with ginger dipping sauce; marinated crab claw and watermelon salad; fried spareribs with pickled green papaya. While ramen enthusiasts might enjoy some of the options, most New Orleanians crave spice, and these dishes come off a bit bland. We do give Noodle & Pie kudos for its pies, however. Almond Joy pie with chocolate whip and chocolate syrup anyone? Yes, please. Note wines by the glass average about $10 each, and there’s a limited beer selection.
