Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Tempura fried shrimp
Tempura fried shrimp
$$$, Modern, Outdoor Seating, Full Bar, French, Garden
"Coquette – Tempura Fried Shrimp Salad with grapefruit and Siracha. The local shrimp were perfectly cooked. I wouldn’t have thought that grapefruit and siracha would work so well together."
Beef hanger steak

"Being my favorite restaurant in New Orleans, every dish here has been memorable. The hangar steak is always a table guaranteed choice when available, and the crispy fries are a perfect complement."
