Sazerac Restaurant Review: Named to honor one of New Orleans’ finest cocktails, Sazerac hosts a popular happy hour, offering a menu of boldly flavored small bites at equally small prices. We like chef Jason McClure’s tangy goat cheese-stuffed dates that are wrapped in smoked bacon and then brushed with a balsamic reduction sauce. Nosh on hand-cut french fries, pulled pork sandwiches with white cheddar and mustard barbecue sauce, or deviled eggs with smoked ham and jalapeño peppers. For a casual lunch, choose among several salads, sandwiches and pizzas. Dinnertime entrées range from pan-seared scallops with clams and chorizo, roasted carrots and Parmesan grits to pork cheeks with parsnip purée. Save room for the chocolate cake or the Southern classic bourbon-pecan tart with caramel mousse. A Northwest-leaning wine list and professional service add to the appeal for Hotel Monaco guests and locals.
