NOLA 534 - Saint Louis Street, New Orleans, LA
Part of Chef Emeril Lagasse's domain. It’s creative, modern
Louisianan food. The Atmosphere does
feel like a chain restaurant yet the service is great. The menu had a good
selection. I had an out of sight Gumbo and a bone in pork chop with a
caramelized onion reduction sauce that was excellent. The wine list was great.
No shortage there. It is highly priced but
I definitely recommend it.
Top 200 Wines – Daniel Johnnes with Michael Stevenson 2004
writing style that teaches in a way that is easy to grasp. It works well as an
intro- wine book but at the same time much more. It has wines to try, foods to
match, hot spots. The book's second half comprises a wide-ranging list of 200
wine selections to search out. The wines are not easy to find though. But the writing and info is just
so good. It’s good to get recommendations by a seasoned sommelier and you can
tell it’s not phony.
