Domenica Restaurant in New Orleans:  A Welcome Addition to the New Orleans Food Scene

My friend Chav and I recently had the pleasure of a girl's getaway to New Orleans, one of my favorite places to visit.  We had a fabulous time and ate some amazing food, but our visit to a fairly new restaurant called Domenica blew us away with their food, ambiance, and level of attention to service.  So much that I decided they definitely deserved a blog post by yours truly since this is a secret that should not be a secret anymore.

I'll start with our server Todd...

Hi Todd!! 

He started our amazing experience with being able to suggest and modify dishes based on our dietary needs ( Chav does not eat meat) That he made us feel truly welcome and special was just icing on an already exquisite cake!

I have to mention Matt as well since he was a fellow New Yorker and made us feel equally as welcome...

Hi Matt!

I want to say Hi to Laurie as well, but unfortunately we forgot to take her picture...

We ate an amazing meal and this was our starter..

It's called Fried Squash Blossoms and was amazing!

One thing I want to mention is their pizza oven; it is unique as the pizzas rotate through on a conveyor belt so they come out even and perfect every time...

What I didn't know when Chav chose this restaurant amongst the literally hundreds that are available in The Big Easy is that this is a John Besh Restaurant and if the other restaurants he runs are as good to eat in as this one, then they are truly a " Do Not Miss" food event while your are visiting!!

Go eat, ask for Todd, and tell them Wendy sent you!
