Wolfe's in the Warehouse Restaurant Review: Décor in the renovated, 150-year-old cotton warehouse is decidedly mundane. With its old-fashioned tile floors, nicely spaced tables and soft yellow walls, the place is pleasant, if not noteworthy in its ambience. But dining at Wolfe's is anything but mundane. For breakfast, try eggs Benedict or a Big Easy omelet, while at lunch you'll find such dishes as the Warehouse burger with cheddar and crispy bacon or the chef’s daily preparation of fresh fish. Although the menu changes periodically, a typical dinner should begin with the crawfish and basil pesto over angel hair, followed by a Louisiana crab meat salad. Panko-crusted redfish atop a smoked Gouda velouté, tender, steamy and full-flavored, is a more imaginative take on redfish than is found in most local restaurants. Deep thought went into the creation of the international wine list. Desserts are a bit uninspired but the offerings are well-executed, especially the vanilla crème brûlée. This may not be a destination restaurant, but it is convenient for those staying in the hotel. Service is uneven.
