Cure in New Orleans

4905 Freret St.
New Orleans, LA

I was super excited to eat here! I’ve driven by many times and have always wanted to go in. Everything on the menu looked so good; we ordered almost everything.  This wine bar also has an excellent choice of scotch. I love the ambiance with dim lighting and leather couch seats.

we started off with goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped in pancetta. These were SO DELICIOUS! The sweetness of the dates complimented the pancetta in the background of goat cheese and it was coated in a syrup of dates.

Bacon and Bleu cheese tartine w bayley hazen, louisiana honey, bacon and onion jam. The bacon with blue cheese and onion is no stranger, but the hazen and honey were a new and much welcomed spin.

Spicy Jamaican meat pie with chicken, coconut curry, barbeque sauce and house made orange coconut soda. The coconut curry was a little on the weak side, but I really loved the barbeque sauce combination with the meat pie.

Shrimp Ceviche with pico de gallo, pepper, mango, pickled mustard seed and avocado. The ceviche had a strong citrus flavor (that is how ceviche is prepared) and was served cold.

Vadouvian Cauliflower with cauliflower cream, curry spiced vegetables and white choocolate. I was blown away by this dish. The cauliflower was not only beautiful in presentation but delicious and not soggy at all.

Short rib “debris” sandwich with gruyere, red wine braised black angus short rib, shiitake ragout and onion jam. This was by far, the winner of the night. The juicy meat on the toasted and buttered sandwich with the onion flavor was HEAVENLY. If I were to have a last meal on earth, this would be part of that meal.

The count with french toast, chiesi ham, membrillo, manchego, dijon mustard, egg. The dijon mustard was very strong but still good.
