Rib Room Restaurant Review

: Rib Room harkens to the Camelot era, when people dressed for dinner and never considered a steak without the mandatory icy cold martini. Its oversize windows embrace a massive view of bustling, historic Royal Street. Start with New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp with brown-buttered French bread, and move directly into a hearty cut of the house prime rib, slow roasted for hours and served still sizzling. Entrées can be pricey, but sides are built for two diners; try the Creole cream cheese grits or the shaved Brussels sprouts with crispy pork belly. For dessert, go traditional New Orleans with bread pudding and rum sauce, or choose more exotic flavors with spiced pumpkin mousse and ginger shortbread. The wine cellar serves the restaurant best with its respectable collection of full-bodied, hearty reds that complement the beef entrées. We like the always dependable, spicy Heitz Cellar Zinfandel, but if whites are your preference, the list wisely includes the rich, oaky Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc. Note: Former chef Michael Gottlieb has left the restaurant.
