A Zagat-rated boutique restaurant named Best French Restaurant of 2009 by New Orleans Magazine, Flaming Torch swaddles palates with a menu of gourmet continental French cuisine. Chefs gather fresh, locally sourced ingredients to sculpt plates of chicken forestiere sautéed with mushrooms and leeks in demi cream ($16), or crevettes barbecue ($22–$29), a strutting kick line of New Orleans–style jumbo shrimp cooked in Abita beer and butter. Forks juggle crabmeat beignets with grilled-corn salad and herb aioli ($14), and duck confit and seared duck breast ($27) sing three-part harmonies with lyonnaise potato. Followed by an entourage of root vegetables, free-range-chicken coq au vin ($25) wades through red wine like a fly fisherman at a black-tie event. Diners pair entrees with a cadre of ever-changing 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.
