Other Recommended Restaurants: If you're a fan of La Petite Grocery, the uptown swanky restaurant from husband-and-wife team Justin Devillier and Mia Freiberger-Devillier, a visit to the couple's second restaurant Balise is in order. Named for La Balize (or La Balise), the first French fort and settlement near the mouth of the Mississippi River, Balise is on Carondolet (pronounced with a hard T at the end, if you want to sound like a local) in the CBD. Set in a historic Creole townhouse at the corner of Girod, Balise isn't as fancy as its uptown sib, but the vibe is gracious and warm and the food robust and equally well paired with beer as with wine. Devillier's food is simply gorgeous. The composed plates are lovely to eyeball, then dig in to the likes of smoky blistered shishito peppers informed with bacon and cream cheese, silky venison tartare served with garlicky mayonnaise and baked rigatoni bathed in a rich ragout of short ribs laced with fontina cheese. Try the stocky toffee pudding for dessert.
