Located in the Freret neighborhood, Gautreau’s serves contemporary Louisiana and French cuisine prepared by chef Sue Zemanick. Named James Beard Award "Rising Star" Finalist in 2011, Zemanick is known for her signature duck confit with German potato salad. Other menu items include crispy sweetbreads with sweet potato-bacon hash, braised Moroccan spiced lamb shank, sauteed tripletail with sauce Americaine, and wild mushroom perogies. The interior of the restaurant has a frescoed ceiling, red and fabric-draped walls, and wood doors. For dessert, the caramelized banana split with vanilla ice cream is a regular favorite.
