This place was delicious! We went for breakfast but were a little late so ate off the regular menu. We were in a group of three. I consider the bill reasonable for what we got and where we were. All three of us ate, had one mimosa, dessert, and two french quarter coffees for under $80. I had the sampler (jambalaya, etoufee, and gumbo) which came with 3 good size slices of french bread, my husband had the Pasta Maque-Choux, and our friend got the fried green tomatoes. Everything was DELICIOUS and we all left very full!!! And the staff was very friendly and nice. We ended the meal with their delicious HUGE serving of bread pudding (3 of us shared one order) and the french quarter coffee.
I am a local that highly recommends Le Foret. Although the atmosphere is formal the service is very good but not stuffy. The food is excellent with good portions but not over priced. The Noisette of Veal is tender and loaded with flavor with all the fresh vegetables and light demi-glace that accompany it. Had a Condensed Milk Souffle for dessert that was well worth every calorie, was very surprised that is was not overly sweet but what a wonderful flavor. They brought out many amuse-bouche prior to the meal that were all very tasty and all dishes are beautiful presented. I plan to return many times to try the remainder of the menu.
Love it here, true neighborhood down home feel, we stop here every time we visit New Orleans & they are always friendly & welcoming as if we are regulars. A true gem to this city. Food is made to order so don't be in a hurry lol but it's worth the wait. Thank you Anita's
