A fixture of Magazine Street, Lilette takes simplicity to heart with dishes driven by an Italian appreciation for ingredients. But this is New Orleans after all, and French technique more than sneaks into Chef John Harris’ cuisine. (Why shouldn’t escargot share a table with coppa and gnocchi?) Beth Biundo is one of New Orleans’ most senior pastry chefs, and she’s confident enough to serve quenelles of ice cream as a menu star, instead of its default stepchild. Together, Harris and Biundo make a mature culinary duo, curating their tastes and crafts into memorable meals for faithful diners. Lilette is a restaurant you can love, claim as your own, and enjoy year after year. It has more than enough excitement and deep-seeded satisfaction to sustain the love affair.
