C’est La Vie in New Orleans, LA

C’est La Vie
4206 Magazine St.
New Orleans, LA


This is the new French bistro restaurant uptown. They’re not getting their liquor license until April so it’s BYO until then (no corkage fee for the first 3 bottles of wine!) The clientele was pretty mixed between people in their 20s and people in their 50s.

French onion soup

The French onion soup was phenomenal! The onion soup was topped with melted cheese toast.

Pork medallions

I apologize for the poor lighting of these photos. Unfortunately, these uptown restaurants are notorious for their dim lighting (romantic ambiance) and so it’s a photographer’s nightmare! Luckily, out of all the photos, this one was the worse. This dish has pork medallions in a dijon mustard cream sauce, potato au gratin, and ratatouille.


I got to try one of my friend’s mussels and they were pretty good.  This dish had steamed mussels with white wine sauce served with french fries.


The duck had good reviews online and came highly recommended by the waittress and so this is what I got. The duck breast is served with lingonberry sauce, ratatouille and mashed potato

I'm a food aficionado with an interest in photography. Most of my restaurants will be in New Orleans as I will be here over the next few years. Every now and then you will see a post from Boston or Philadelphia too!
