Cuisine: American, Cajun
Restaurant R'evolution, situated in the Royal Sonesta Hotel on Bourbon Street, channels the creative powers of two chefs, James Beard-winner Rick Tramonto from Chicago, and John Folse, a local chef-personality from Donaldsonville. With competent Chef de cuisine Jana Billiot responsible for fomenting this dual vision, the menu here is imaginative and showy, with a price tag to match. Modern takes on Cajun/Creole dishes include Crawfish Stuffed Flounder Napoleon and the Gulf Shrimp and Grits. Can't decide what to eat? Like most powerhouse New Orleans Restaurants, R'evolution offers a tasting menu where you can sample a bit of this and that. The bar is known for handcrafting a great Sazerac.
