Voted 2009's Best French Restaurant by New Orleans Magazine, Flaming Torch flaunts an evolving menu of cross-continental cuisine in a cozy French bistro setting. Culinary journeys commence with the well-ringed classicalism of french onion soup au gratin ($7). Coq au vin melds crispy-skinned free-range chicken with lush brushes of red wine and root vegetables cooked in subtle, elegant flavors ($20/lunch; $22/dinner). Allow taste buds to tango around sweetness of caramelized onions in le foie lyonnaise, a traditional dish of sautéed veal liver ($17). Pair meals with selections from a winding wine list, and elixirs such as the 2007 Louis Jadot Beaujolais ($7/glass; $29/bottle) or Chateau La Freynelle ($7/glass; $29/bottle) will have you spilling secrets about lost loves or former Bacharach addictions in no time.

Flaming Torch fuses flavors of local ingredients, putting conscientious spins on classic French dishes. The bistro's dimly lit romantic setting of white-linen table clothes and hushed conversations exalted it to excellence by Zagat. Following meals, linger in the comely cradle of muted walls, swirling wine in your glass while contemplating the French countryside whereabouts of Johnny Depp.

Flaming Torch Restaurant

A Zagat-rated boutique restaurant named French Restaurant of the Year by New Orleans Magazine in 2009, Flaming Torch swaddles palates with menus of gourmet continental French cuisine. Chefs gather fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create brunch, lunch, and dinner menus that include imported-cheese plates, fish, pasta, and crepes that change daily. Diners pair entrees with a cadre of ever-rotating American and French wines. The intimate Victorian dining room, ideal for impressing a first date or bribing a traffic cop, is flush with natural light, dark-blue walls, wood accents, and crystal chandeliers.

Customer Reviews

And excellent night all around. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were just right. A nice, cozy place. Not too loud. The service was friendly, sharp, and not overbearing. The owner works the room herself and she is a delight. The food was excellent. I had a hard time deciding what to order. I'll definitely be back to try some of the other items on the menu.

The service and atmosphere were excellent. The food was good, but the prices were a higher than the last time we were there. Glad we had a Groupon!

We were a party of three who dined at the Flaming Torch. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food we ordered tasted fresh and very flavorful, and what I consider expertly prepared. The dining room I found to be cozy and very pleasantly decorated. The Flaming Torch turned out to be a great find and I will be going back.
