Capdeville in New Orleans

520 Capdeville St.
New Orleans, LA 70130

This is a trendy restaurant that appeals mostly to the business clientele (probably because this is located in the business district of Nola). I noticed the other tables were filled with suits. Oh well, it didn’t stop me from venturing to this British-style-influenced restaurant. The ambiance was nice with its mostly black walls and furniture, which were lined with interesting artsy photographs that all shared the theme of a love for New Orleans. My fellow foodie ordered the Philly Cheese steak salad, while I had the Capdeville burger with parmesan truffle fries. That’s right, truffle oil on my french fries. It was DELICIOUS! The parmesan cheese balanced the truffle flavor perfectly and add in the crispy texture of the french fries and it was a culinary masterpiece. My burger was also to die for, the au poivre sauce was nicely blended in with the gruyere cheese and roasted garlic aioli. The salad’s dressing was sweet enough to mask the usual flavor of arugula, and the home-made croutons were a delight. The service here was very friendly and quick (I noticed it was all men……odd).

    Surely you jest.

    I work in close proximity to Capedeville…and have eaten (or attempted to eat) there at lunch-time on several occasions. Big mistake.

    Capedeville “poses” as a trendy locale for a cozy, after-5 cocktail. The vibe is an interesting mix of yuppie and avante-garde wannabe. Waitstaff features goth/tatted “wish-some-Hollywood-director-would-discover-me” bored twenty-somethings who can’t figure out why that BA in sociology didn’t generate a better gig….All of which explains the truly, truly horrid service.

    The limited menu is decidedly chick-ish…and offerings are simply not that inventive or well prepared.

    Hot meals (like a simple burger and fries) are frequently served cold! On at least two occasions, service was SO slow (for no apparent reason) that my companions and I simply walked out.

    Eat here if you want to look trendily bored and hope to catch the eye of a fellow Gen X or Y’er and a drink. But if you actually want to eat a decent meal…Subway is right around the corner.
