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).
