Compère Lapin, New Orleans, Louisiana
The first thing to say is that this is a place that definitely does pasta well. The pasta in a spinach 'fondue' was especially memorable, with perfectly cooked pasta in a very delicious and complexly flavored spinach sauce that literally made me want to lick the skillet out. And I am not really that crazy about spinach, so that is saying something. The lobster gazpacho soup was both beautiful and delicious. Wouldn't ordinarily order gazpacho in a restaurant because it is so easy to make, but this was fantastic and different.
