Lafayette (380 Lafayette Street).
This is a pretty new restaurant. It's this big beautiful place. I had a glorious meal there. The cocktails are fun. You go so many places now where the cocktails are expensive and dull. This place has cute, fun, traditional cocktails that are really good. They have wonderful cheeses, too. What I remember most about the meal was when they got to the beignets at the end. It was this little pile of beignets, with a little pot of pudding and some cream, and drizzled sauces. You just dip them in the sauces and the combinations were endless. I would go back just for that dessert.
