fresh. fun versions of bistro classics

Evangeline’s menu features fresh, fun versions of bistro favorites like croque madame and Coq au Vin.  Standards such as assiette de fromages  and tour de fruits de mer are given new life in their interpretations by Chef Rios.  Most exciting, perhaps, are the ‘instant classics’ of our own making, like beef tartare and shrimp étouffée.  The menu layout is simple and clear, yet attractive and tempting.  The flavors are big, bold, beautiful, and yet sublime–but ”subtle” is not an adjective used to describe the food at Evangeline.

toe-tapping cocktails, lip-smacking beers and tantalizing wines

Our beverage program features toe-tapping cocktails, lip-smacking beers, and tantalizing wines.  The wine list consist of approachable but well-chosen wines ici la bas–”from here and there”. The wine list is divided into two sections: Monde Ancien (Old World) and New World. The selections made by our Sommelier and Wine Director Sasan Nayeri are focused on wines of Burgundy, Rhone and Italy in the Old World category, and pays homage to the wines of Napa Valley in the New World.

Cocktails will showcase local liquors used for New Orleans classic such as the Sazerac, while the draught beer selection will be shine a spotlight on Northern California’s fantastic choice of breweries (while including the legendary Abita Turbodog from Abita Springs, La.)
