I came across this article on one of my favorite restaurants from my time in New Orleans. Their Creole cuisine is on par with the fine dining restaurants in the city but served in a cozier setting. I would compare the experience to attending a dinner party at a personal residence ( where your host also happens to be a world class chef). Brigtsen’s is a perennial top 10 New Orleans restaurant and well worth the trip uptown to Dante street. They are closed on Mondays but would recommend eating there any other day of the week. I have included their contact information below.

Lagniappe: I recommend the bread pudding for dessert
