Judges Comments for 2017
This is a charming and enjoyable addition to dining experiences in Ballarat providing great atmosphere and enthusiastic , friendly’and dedicated staff. The décor is reminiscent of the Deep South of the USA and the dishes on the imaginative menu provide a gastronomic experience that is a pleasure to explore. The staff are knowledgeable, dedicated and enthusiastic about everything they do and understand what is important to customers. The stylish cocktail bar adds an authentic edge to an evening of delicious foods, fun and laughter. There was an excellent selection of oysters, and the Cajun Bloody Mary was smoked on the premises. Standouts included the “Little Easy” share plate, “Hush Puppies’, “Brisket Burnt Ends”, “Jalapeño Poppers”, “Creole Blackened Brick Chicke”n and the Steakhouse section including the organic Scotch fillet with Cajun Butter, and the “Toot Sweets” were impressively authentic. For such a new venue the dishes and service were remarkable, there is a good selection of wines, beers and ciders with strong local content. The dining experience at Nouvelle Orleans was excellent, enjoyable and good value for money.
Enjoyable soul-food style and flavours, hearty servings, good drinks list, great atmosphere, excellent and entertaining customer service, a new restaurant destined to be a great Ballarat favourite.
