Another New Orleans classic from the Brennan family (also the minds behind Commander’s Palace) with a heavy list and charming French Quarter courtyard dining. Classic Creole cuisine meets modern New Orleans fare in an eight-dining room venue that celebrates the city’s historic, grand style. Former New York sommelier Joe Billesbach has built an impressive list of both expected players and outliers, categorized by region and grape in the U.S., in Europe by region, and for Burgundy, by village and cru.
