This restaurant is one of our all-time favorites! I have been there several times over the years while on vacation, and they have always served interesting and delicious foods very artfully presented. When I came to New Orleans a few years prior, we took my Mom there for her birthday. And on this trip we decided to introduce all our friends to this wonderful place! Their specialties involve seafood, especially local catches like crayfish and scallops, and local produce.

One of my favorite appetizers is the goat cheese crouton with mushrooms in Madeira cream--delicious! And my husband enjoyed the cream of garlic soup. For dessert we had to try the local favorite--warm chocolate coffee beignets with vanilla bean ice cream! The servers also suggest wine accompaniments and tasty after-dinner liquors, which work very well and add to the experience.

(On a side note: I know the city is in shambles now, but I have corresponded via email with head chef Susan Spicer several times, and we all hope and pray they can revive this city jewel once the city is back on its feet. We give all our love to Bayona and the beautiful, unique city of New Orleans. May its people and spirit survive and persevere!)
