Since Valentine’s Day was right around the corner, it’s only appropriate that I share my Vday dinner!
For Vday we went to Ralph’s On the Park, located in New Orleans’ historic City Park. Ralph’s is owned by the Brennan family, a New Orleans’ culinary family. If you want to experience geniune New Orleans flavors, visit a Brennan’s family restaurant. This one is one of the many typically known for their brunch.
Blue Crab Beignets masa fried oysters, pan seared pork belly, Meyer lemon gastrique
American Wagyu Beef Belly star anise and juniper, cranberry-infused worcestershire glaze
Honey Mussels (Aphrodisiac menu) tagliatelle pasta, fennel sausage, saffron, fresh herbs, tomatoes, white wine
Oysters Aphrodite (Aphrodisiac menu) w/ spicy pepper jelly cream
Salmon Roulade w/ lobster and white chocolate filling, wilted spinach, salmon roe, vanilla bean beurre blanc
The meal was delicious! My favorite had to be the Wagyu…it just melts into a seasoned butter in your mouth. I love the detail of flavors that Ralph’s brought to my plate. I will definitely return…especially since I have yet to try this epic brunch that everyone talks about!
