New Orleans, LA, United States, 2005/08/17 - New Orleans will be hosting the Parade of Cuisine, a month long celebration of food and wine.
While New Orleans is already known for its extravagant festivities that come with Mardi Gras, this event formalizes New Orleans as a culinary capitol during the month of August. The word “New Orleans” in most cases is used synonymously with the words fun, food, and excitement. Many restaurants offer wonderful lunch specials at $20.05 or less and dinner menus at $30.05 or less. This city offering is a natural fit for tourists wishing to dine on exquisite food and to see what New Orleans has to offer. Two restaurants to visit in order to make your tour of New Orleans complete are the LA CÔTE BRASSERIE and the Rene Bistrot. Both New Orleans restaurants have a great selection of food and provide you with a dining experience like no other in the French Quarter.
The LA CÔTE BRASSERIE, housed in the Renaissance Arts Hotel, located in a historic 1910 warehouse, provides a unique and artistic choice in the heart of the Arts District of New Orleans. Located on the Lobby level of this New Orleans Luxury Hotel, large picture windows provide stunning views of the neighborhood. This stylish, modern restaurant includes an exposed kitchen, a full service New Orleans seafood raw bar, and was rated 3 Beans by the Times Picayune. In addition to Louisiana style seafood dishes, Executive Chef Subra's summer menu is enhanced by Asian influence. Signature dishes include: Hibachi Scallops with Chinese mustard sprouts and Tuna Poke, both bringing a new dimension to traditional New Orleans cuisine.
The LA CÔTE BRASSERIE currently features the Table d'Hote - Daily 3 course lunch special for $15, and the Chef's Tasting Menu - 6 course dinner special for $65 and $95 with wine pairing.
The Rene Bistrot, a classic French Bistrot, housed in the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel, gateway to the French Quarter, is a historic 18 story building located just one block from Bourbon Street and 6 blocks to the New Orleans Superdome. French country cuisine goes haute in the hands of Rene Bajeux, a former executive chef of the Windsor Hotels Grille Room. Casually, chic, Rene’s gets it all right and makes it look effortless, from the knowing wine list to the fleet servers. Now offering 3 course daily table d’ Hote Menu $15 for lunch and $28 at dinner. The saddle of rabbit in a mustard crust is delectable, as are the home made pates.
The Rene Bistrot has been awarded 4 beans by The Time-Picayune, and the Award of Excellence, by the Wine Spectator.
