Compere Lapin serves a mix of French, Italian, and Creole dishes inside the Old 77 boutique hotel. Between their brunch, lunch, and dinner menus, this place in the Warehouse District covers a lot of ground, with dishes like dirty rice arancini and curried goat with sweet potato gnocchi, along with one of the largest wine selections in the city. It’s a bit more upscale, but it’s one of our favorites for celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just being on vacation. In case you’re in need of a snack or caffeine boost instead, stop at Tout La, their cafe next door, for coffee and pastries.
