Restaurant R'evolution Restaurant Review

: When Louisiana's John Folse and Chicago’s Rick Tramonto teamed up to create Cajun and Creole cuisine, they sought to re-imagine both styles of cooking and offer the results in the most upscale environment they could envision. Done and done. Chefs Folse and Tramonto’s take on traditional Louisiana fare produces such dishes as beer-battered crab beignets, crispy sweetbreads accented with herbsaint, crawfish-stuffed flounder with artichoke and oyster stew, and rotisserie duck with foie gras rice. Southern sensibilities are best exemplified by a Cajun-fried oyster salad. This dining experience could begin with Tramonto's "caviar staircase" of all black caviars ($200). A state-of-the-art, 10,000-bottle wine cellar and an unusually complex wine list offer such hard-to-find selections as Château Margaux (1961). Dinner can be a three-hour affair, ending sweetly with a good Southern Creole cream cheese panna cotta or a chocolate Grand Marnier soufflé. If there is a drawback it’s the high price point, far exceeding established fine dining houses such as Arnaud's and Antoine's. Call well in advance for a reservation, especially for large parties.
