Melanie and I spent a couple of days roaming around New Orleans' French Quarter earlier this month. The weather was cool and a bit rainy, but we've always enjoyed the occasional visit regardless.
We choose Bayona for dinner one evening mainly because we were familiar with the quality of the cusine and because we were camped/parked only a few blocks away in the French Quarter Public Parking.
The last time we ate at Bayona was years back when I accompanied Melanie to New Orleans for a deposition. A good friend had just eaten there and highly recommended it to us. She was kind enough to call ahead for us, spoke with owner and James Beard Best Chef winner, Susan Spicer, made our reservation, and Bayona made sure the evening was memorable.
I'm pleased to say our latest visit was equally delightful. I enjoyed a special prefix menu featuring pork osso buco, Melanie enjoyed the Rabbit. Great food and wine, great service. Highly recommended.
