New Orleans: Rambla

Rambla (in the International Hotel (has a street entrance))
The ambiance of this restaurant is wonderful from its rich red walls to its unique light fixtures. I love everything about this place the service was impeccable. The drink menu was extensive and unique. As was the dinner menu. Our server was very helpful with recommendations. We both ordered cucumber mint martinis, which were light and refreshing. This tapas style restaurant has its menu separated out into six areas Snacks, Salads, Charcuterie, Flatbreads, Small and Large. Here is our selection in order of the menu:

Chicharrones “Two-Ways” with Chimichurri and Charred Tomato Espuma

Roasted Heirloom Beets with Valdeon, Spiced Nuts, Sour Apple Jelly and Sugarcane Vinaigrette

Moroccan Spiced Pork and Duck Rillettes

Roasted Fig with Valdeon Blue Cheese, Serrano Ham and Bitter Greens

Spanish Style Pork Meatballs Toasted Pinenuts and Tomato Sherry Gastrique

I am really bummed that I did not take any pictures when we were here the presentation of the food was so unique. If you are ever in New Orleans you defiantly need to check out this place. Amazing!
