Today, the buildings original red brick forms two walls of the large dining room. At midday, an expanse of glass at the rear bathes the room with light and offers a sweeping view of the classic architectural details of an adjacent structure. From thick wooden beams hang wrought-iron chandeliers cradling jeroboams and magnums that once held some of Frances legendary champagnes. Placed between pilasters and panels of burnished wood are gilt-framed landscapes, portraits and still lifes.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Bob Iacovone, Cuvies menus amount to contemporary celebrations of the French and Spanish influences that have informed New Orleans gastronomy for more than two centuries. The approach is typified in such dishes as a napoleon of thin, crisp slices of fried mirliton (chayote) layered with equally thin-sliced shrimp and splashes of Creole rimoulade sauce; a paella cake of andouille sausage with garlic and wild mushrooms; and a shellfish croquette served with corn succotash and a red-pepper coulis.
Sharing the spotlight with Cuvies kitchen is the wine cellar, boasting more than 600 labels from top producers in the Americas, Europe and Australia.
Cuvie has maintained top-10 ranking from the New Orleans Times Picayune for the last 2 years. Zagat Guide ranks Cuvie in America's Top Restaurants.
