Three Muses in New Orleans

Three Muses
536 Frenchmen St.
New Orleans, LA

ambiance

This place has had quite a hype. Being on a fun street like Frenchmen St, you have to curtail to a certain hipster clientele. The happy hour is super long and there are bands constantly rotating throughout the night which does present a problem for dinner conversations but is entertaining nonetheless.

$3 margaritas!

My friends and I came here during happy hour and we were glad to take advantage of it. We started it off with $3 margaritas.  The margaritas were refreshing on a hot summer day. I wish mine had more alcohol but that’s just personal preference.

deviled egg with vodka cured salmon

The deviled egg didn’t have an overwhelming yolk flavor which was a relief.  The vodka cured salmon was creative and I definitely could appreciate the taste of vodka.

pretezel wrapped bratwurst

This pretzel wrapped bratwurst came out on sauerkraut (fermented cabbage, the non-kimchi variety).  These little play on pigs wrapped in a blanket were tasty and juicy at the same time.

feta fries

Feta fries were a dish of crispy fries with feta and gremolata.  Gremolata is a combination of lemon zest, garlic and parsley. These were delicious.

braised rabbit pappardelle

I was a bit hesitant to eat rabbit but the taste wasn’t foreign, it was more the texture that surprised me. These wide sage noodles came out in a white wine mustard sauce. I’m gonna have to say that out of everything we ordered, this dish was probably my least favorite of the night. It just didn’t have the same wow factors as the other dishes.

lamb sliders

These were my favorite. The lamb sliders had tomato chutney and herbed goat cheese. The lamb meat was tender and succulent. I wish there were more of these!

chipotle pork tostones

this was also off the happy hour menu (seriously people, 4 PM to 7:30 PM! you need to hit that!). the meat was good but the chipotle flavor really came threw.

steak and crab

This dish was hard to share with other people as only one thing of grilled Harris Ranch Hanger steak on top of a crabcake came out. Hanger steak is not known for being a tender cut but word on the street is that it is quite flavorful. And by word on the street, I mean here on this blog. This was delicious and probably my #2 favorite of the night. The crabcake was money!

fish taco

The seared drum came out topped with tangy slaw and avocado cream. These were delightful. We were told that this was a favorite among customers and it was easy to see why.

mushroom canelloni

This dish was yummy. Although the marsala mushroom sauce was pretty hard to soak in with the mushroom wrapped canelloni.
