Melange at the Ritz Carlton New Orleans Reviews
Nov 26, 2007
Can't decide which notable New Orleans restaurant to dine at? Go to Melange at the Ritz Carlton. The menu is comprised of selections from various area eateries, including Jacque Imo's, Arnaud's, Restaurant August and Upperline, as well as some original dishes.
We started with Melange's own Demi Tasse soup tasting, a trio of turtle soup, gumbo and lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was amazing and the others were really good too.
We also had Jacque Imo's alligator sausage and shrimp cheesecake appetizer, which is more like a quiche than a cheesecake, but in any case is really scrumptious.
For our entrees, we split the Palace Cafe's pepper crusted duck and Arnaud's shrimp creole. Both were tasty, but the duck was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. It comes with several slices of soft, melty cofit and frizee topped with an amazing foie gras.
The service was excellent, and the chef even sent out an appetizer he was working on free of charge, a little slice of quiche.
Dessert was mediocre, but the rest of the meal more than made up for it.
