Meals from this weekend Updated with pics



Saturday Brunch: Atchafalaya for 2
Me: The Boudreaux
eggs over easy, alligator sausage, jalapeño corn bread, crystal potatoes, creole hollandais

Wife: Eggs Atchafalaya
fried green tomatoes, poached eggs,
jumbo lump crab, hollandaise

Side of cream cheese grits
All was very good. Probably my 3rd favorite meal from the weekend.

Dinner Saturday: Boucherie for 2
Appetizers: Blackened shrimp and grit cake with warm house made bacon vinaigrette
Boudin ball with garlic aioli
Fresh cut french fries with garlic butter and parmesan reggiano
Me: Saint Louis style Niman Ranch ribs celeriac apple remoulade and crispy fried shallots
Wife: Pulled pork cake with potato confit and purple cabbage cole slaw

Overall enjoyed the meal. I was more impressed with the appetizers than the entrees. the pulled pork was very good and the ribs were very tender and flavorful but it did not feel like "finer" dining. french fries were some of the best i have ever had. very similar to curbside.
Sunday Brunch: Coquette
Apps: We had the fried sweetbreads but they are not on the online menu so I do not remember the exact things. They were pretty good. never had them before and would probably order again at another place. They reminded me of oysters in texture.
Fried Oysters, boudin noir and meyer lemon, parsley.----very good
Me: Eggs benedict with tasso
Wife: Pork and cheddar sausage with an egg over easy.
we both had the milk punch which was very good also.

For the price, would not go back. Atchafalaya was better and so is chimes brunch.

Sunday Dinner: Upperline for 3--Highlight of the trip
Apps: Spicy Shrimp with Jalapeño Cornbread & Aïoli
Crispy Louisiana Oysters with Celery Root Remoulade
The Original Fried Green Tomato with Shrimp Remoulade

Entrees: Cane River Country Shrimp
New Orleans Style Veal Grillades with Mushrooms & Cheddar Grits
Tom Cowman's Famous Roast Duck with Garlic Port or Ginger Peach Sauce

Desserts: Upperline Warm Louisiana Pecan Pie
Crème Brûlée with Crushed Pralines
Honey- Pecan Bread Pudding with Toffee Sauce

Everything was excellent. The atmosphere was great. The service was great. Jo-ann? the owner was very pleasant and attentive. Standouts were the oysters, duck, veal, and pecan pie.


Monday Lunch: Cochon for 3
Apps: wood-fired oyster roast
fried alligator with chili garlic aioli
smoked cobia with apple calas
fried boudin with pickled peppers
cane syrup glazed pork cheeks with mushrooms & roasted corn grits
Entrees: rabbit & dumplings
oyster & bacon sandwich
Wife ate macaroni & cheese casserole
Side: Sweet Potato casserole with smoked jowl

Overall the 2nd best meal of the weekend only because upperline set the bar too high. Everything i had was really good. I ordered the oyster blt and it had 10 or so fried oysters and normal sized sandwich break with bacon. the roasted oysters were very good along with the pork cheeks.

How do i post pictures again?

Wow we do not see eye to eye.

Upperline is one of my least favorite meals in New Orleans of all time. I disliked it. Everything about it was mediocre as frick. Would never go back and will always be the one on here to argue against it, I just do not understand the love AT ALL.

Coquette, on the other hand, is my favorite restaurant in the city, especially for Dinner. I agree that I like Atchafalaya's brunch slightly more though.

Great review. Y'all did some damn fine eating! Post pics by hosting them on a site like photobucket or tinypic then post them by clicking "img" and pasting the image-only url.

To be fair I don't think any dish on the menu is over $ 16.00.

Sorry. Took a nap after posting. To clarify, $30 for 4 ribs and a ball of pulled pork seemed expensive for bbq. I enjoyed it but would have rather spent a little more and had something better. It was no doubt good though.

I would be willing to try coquette for dinner. I really liked the room and the atmosphere but the brunch itself did not do it for me.

I agree if that's all the food you got for that price. 4 ribs seriously?
