Wonderful French Cuisine without the snobbery
I have lived in New Orleans all of my life and love the food and dining scene here. I always attempt to try all of the new places in town, but there are a few places that are simply so wonderful that I can't help but frequent them and Cafe Degas is one of those places. Located in a unique part of town, by City Park and the New Orleans Museum of Art, Cafe Degas sets the atmosphere for a lengthy indulgent meal that you can enjoy with friends or a romantic partner. Most recently when my boyfriend and I were dining there a man proposed to his date right next to us (it's just one of those special places). It is hard to say what to order because everything there is splendid. As mentioned in another review, the French Onion Soup is one of the best I have ever had. The cheese plate is delectable and always changing and the staff gives good insight on wine pairings. I always like to see what the specials are, but the menu changes seasonally. Degas definitely changes their menu seasonally but stays true to true French cuisine. I even had my first veal cheek there, which was amazing. Basically you can not go wrong at Cafe Degas the food and price of it are all to be desired.
