The Bank – Restaurant in the Marigny

Ok, I haven’t actually eaten there yet… I was walking around the neighborhood this past Sunday night after eating at Wasabi and I was surprised to see the most refreshing atmosphere for a restaurant in a long time. Apparently it used to be an old bank building with high vaulted ceilings, painted white with lighting that made it seem like you were in the middle of a museum. My words don’t do it justice. The menu looks fantastic, the waitresses were friendly, and it didn’t look too pricey. Now would be the time to say you were there first…Sunday was their first night. It’s down the street from Wasabi off of Frenchman at Touro and Burgundy. Check it out. I’d love to hear about anyones experience who ate there.

    Mike,

    I was the bartender there that night. You should have come in! The place is going to be a huge success.

    PS: Being a NO blogger for well over a year, I just did a search on google for “New Orleans bloggers”. Duh.

    Oops. I was working Saturday night. Anyway, the Rack of Lamb is to die for.

    I ended up eating there for my birthday on Friday…it was fantastic. Had the antipasti plate, the red curry soup, the rabbit, and the orange sorbet. Service, food, presentation, atmosphere all excellent…they’re going to have a problem with the noise because fo the high ceilings though once it gets crowded…but it WILL get crowded.
