I so miss our House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood so much. I was granted passage to dine in the Foundation Room at the New Orleans location. It did not disappoint, elegant, homey, and chic, with the best food I have had in a long time. Ashley, who does their special events, helped me along on my journey.
Here’s What I tried:
Vodka Martini, traditional martini done the right way.
Broccoli Cheddar Soup, creamy, delicious, and served with a piece of cheesy baguette on top.
House of Blues Salad, a great salad with super fresh greens and a great dressing.
Caesar Salad, just perfect, with a nice tangy Caesar dressing and super fresh romaine lettuce.
Lump Crab Cakes, these cakes were packed full of luscious crab, and there was not a lot of breading, just amazingly delicious crab.
Fried Green Tomatoes, this salad has lump crab as well, bits on the top of the super crispy fried tomatoes. In the South, this is a mainstay and they did it well.
Prime Steak with mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and wonderful fragrant gravy. The meat was super tasty and tender, just a great steak.
Scallops with lobster pasta, this was by far my favorite menu item, and there were pieces of lobster in the sauce and in the pasta, the scallops were big and popped in your mouth, just a lovely menu item.
Orange Crème Brulee, out of this world, enough said!!!
Manager Brittany took great care of me, and so did my server Isaac. Everyone was so friendly and gracious, my whole experience was stellar.
Located right in the French Quarter, I walked from the French Market to the venue; I got to see all of the locals, tourists and people just checking out the sites in the very colorful city.
I was also invited to come back for their Burlesque night, called “Bustout Burlesque”, which I did and had a blast as well. It was more of a variety show then strictly burlesque, either way, its super fun to see all of New Orleans local talent, I would highly recommend it for a night out.
There are so many reminders of the West Hollywood location, so I felt right at home. Great Haitian art, patchwork velvet fabric on the walls and a glorious Buddha, all very tastefully appointed. I just felt so blessed and fortunate to have had this joyful experience.
