There are many restaurants on Magazine Street, but there is only one that got voted “sexiest dining room in New Orleans” by Travel and Leisure Magazine. That one restaurant is a quaint little place offering some out-of-this-world French-Italian cuisine. If you don’t go out of curiosity for how sexy an eating area can actually be, go for the food, because it could easily become your next date night spot. And the good news is that the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans is only a short walk to the restaurant.

The French-Italian offerings at Lilette make it a stand-out joint among the traditional Creole restaurants dotting the city. The restaurant’s Mediterranean flair comes from Chef John Harris, who recalls his fondest childhood memories in the kitchen with his Italian mother. Swing by for lunch, bring a group for dinner-the more people the more to try-or come just for the dessert and coffee, no matter what your order, the offerings at Lilette are sure to please your palate. A sample of the culinary treasures that will meet you can be found at Lilette’s website.

After sampling these offerings and many more selections in the mood-lit, red-walled dining room of Lilette, you may start to understand why Lilette nabbed the “sexiest dining room” award. Before you invite a date, make a reservation as the dining room tends to fill pretty quickly with locals and visitors staying at New Orleans bed and breakfasts.

Better yet, book a romantic weekend stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast before the summer ends for your personalized foodie tour of New Orleans. Nestled in Uptown New Orleans our Garden District bed and breakfast will be just the ticket for some fun and relaxation…and some killer food, of course!
