We went out to Arnaud's Remoulade last night, to help out Ronald McDonald House's night in the restaurant's "20 Days of Charity." Remoulade is owned by Arnaud's, the classic, old-line, Creole-French restaurant, located on Bienville Street, around the corner. Arnaud's opened up Remoulade, their "casual side" facing Bourbon, which was just brilliant.
Erstas! Clockwise, starting with the red one at the top: Suzette, Bienville, Ohan, Rockefeller, Kathryn. It's great to get such class New Orleans food without having to do the full "fancy restaurant" experience.
Turtle Soup, another taste of local goodness. Mrs. YatCuisine had the "Taste of Louisiana," which starts with turtle soup, then a Natchitoches meat pie and some crawfish etouffee.
"Bourbon Street Blues Burger" - this was tasty! The bleu cheese was good, and a bit of Remoulade's Creole Mustard hit the spot.
Remoulade has cocktails, several Abita Brewery beers on tap, lots of bottled beer, and wine by the glass. If you ask, they'll get you the full wine list from Arnaud's. I asked, and chose this nice Italian red.
We finished dinner by splitting a creme brulee, and I had a coffee. Lovely evening for a great cause!
