I had Crawfish Etouffee and De had Grilled Chicken Maque Choux. It just wasn't Gautreau's. I could go on and on and on about the Crawfish Etouffe they served. Yum! NONA's etouffee was okayish, though not as spicy as I like and the side of collard greens was good. De enjoyed his meal... all except the weird side of creamed spinach. (Had I payed dinner prices for my etouffee, I think this review would be harsher.) We had an appetizer of Raw Oysters on the Half Shell with hot sauce and horseradish, which was good and we didn't have dessert. A major disappointment was that beignets are only offered at brunch on the weekends. ( I guess we could have called ahead to ask about that, but we don't think things through that far!) Our service was just fine. Our bill including sweet tea - which De thought was good - and coffee was around $50. (Fifty bucks for two - no alcohol, no dessert and... the lunch menu - just keep all that in mind.) I would try NONA again simply because it has such a fun, lovely atmosphere, but for this trip, I give it 3.5 out of 5.
