After hearing rave reviews, I just had to try it. Tucked onto a corner, Coquette adds a little character to the street. Outside it almost looks like a French Quarter home. Inside…very romantic feel…brickwalls, candlelit tables. There was a bar that took up almost half the restaurant, but who’s complaining?? haha..
Now let’s get to the food….
Bread and Butter!
Pork Belly Fritters.
Duck Breast. Roasted Fennel. English Peas. Citrus.
Black Drum. Crawfish tails. Green Asparagus. Ricotta gnocchi.
Old Fashioned Donut. Huckleberries. Oatmeal Crunch. Sour Cream Ice Cream.
On the house treat. Some sort of jelly swirl…very light treat to a delicious meal! Don’t be fooled like I did, the cup is filled with sand and serves as a holder for the lollipops! There’s nothing edible in there…=P
Everything was delicious. Simplistic yet flavorful. Light, so you’re not overwhelmed with flavors. I don’t think I’ve seen dishes like this anywhere else in New Orleans so their dishes are definitely original. Only disadvantage was the small portions, but I have quite the appetite so that most likely explains that!
