Roux on Orleans Restaurant Review

: Situated in the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, almost in the exact center of the French Quarter, Roux Orleans’ intimate dining room serves what could best be described as Creole comfort food, but the downside is a lack of originality. The menu, while serviceable, is not imaginative enough to distinguish the restaurant in any way. All of the usual local suspects are in line --- gumbo, po’ boys (far more expensive than at most traditional popular restaurants), sandwiches, catfish, steak and more --- but nothing excels as a notable preparation. Even desserts are run of the mill: bread pudding, pecan pie. The menu seems to be geared toward room service items that can easily double as dining room selections. The only surprise is the complexity of the wine list, which offers everything from basic selections to a few top-shelf choices that one would expect to find in a venue of more distinction.

We had a wonderful dinner Saturday Night. I had the Turtle Soup, The Fresh Redfish and The White Chocalate Bread Pudding, companion had Shrimp Absenthe, A trout special topped with crab and the Creme Brulot. All were first class, and our server Rebecca was wonderful. Nice wine list, we has a Sonoma Cuterier Chardonnay and a Jordan Cab, both reasonably priced as was the food menu.
A top class newcomer to New Orleans
