Restaurant Dish: Bistro Daisy

bistrodaisy

The fare: Contemporary Creole

The dress: Dressy Casual

Nestled in New Orleans’ Magazine District in a converted cottage not far from the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans is the inconspicuous  Bistro Daisy.  Don’t be fooled, inside these doors is a foodie’s paradise; make a reservation and devour contemporary American fare served with “ma and pa” hospitality.  The intimate venue manages to mix the best of both worlds, and NOLA residents have heralded the restaurant as a great choice for a romantic and reasonably priced dinner.

Bistro Daisy is operated on team dynamic in every sense of the word- it’s owned by husband-wife team Anton and Diane Schulte.  If you happened to wonder about the creative name, it comes from their daughter, Daisy. While Diane manages the front of the house, and has been known to greet guests warmly, her husband, stationed in the kitchen, has been known to make mouths water. Chef Anton cooks with fresh, seasonal (and much of the time local) foods prepared with American bistro flair. Although the food is categorized as contemporary Creole, the dishes are not too “froo froo” to the point of confusion. Chef Anton has quite a knack when it comes to knowing what flavors to pair for maximum effect.

DO TRY:

-Porcini dusted roast chicken

-Beef filet with a red wine demi and foie gras butter

-The handmade ravioli

-Louisiana oysters poached in horseradish, bacon and garlic cream

If those selections do not speak for themselves, need we mention their pièce de résistance? A well-rounded wine list to top off any of Bistro Daisy’s scrumptious offerings. Bonne petit!
