It's a cozy little corner tucked away in uptown New Orleans. The locals know, the out-of-towners know the brilliantly simple streetcar sign "Eat at Gautreau's". We're here to tell you, our boo Sue Zemanick's outstanding restaurant is an authentically southern experience that is not to be missed in this NOLA lifetime.
We'll leave it to the food writers to dish on these dishes, as we admittedly find ourselves at a loss for words when it comes to Zemanick's expertise. It's just...it's everything a NOLA restaurant should be. The low-lit, romantic interior provides an intimate setting; diners will feel as though they are being entertained in a beautiful living room with the best wine stash of all time. The food is tender, flavorful; innovative but obviously informed by the traditional, and never overwhelmingly avant-garde.
A Black Crane ivory frock strikes the right tone in this warm and elegant environment, paired with a gold-plated Saint Claude ring for a rococo-baroque spin. Finish off with new local artist Queens Metal minimal gold hoops and a handwoven Ace & Jig scarf to ground the look. Stash your lipstain and compact in a Baggu leather stash clutch in a rich mahogany, and throw on a yummy pair of Chie Mahara boots from our new favorite shoe joint, Rosehip boutique.
