The Grill Room at the Windsor Court Hotel
At this fine-dining restaurant in the Windsor Court Hotel, crystal chandeliers and classic white tablecloths contrast with three colorful murals depicting scenes of life in Louisiana. In the kitchen, chef Drew Dzejak incorporates seasonal ingredients and distinctive New Orleans flavors into his modern American menu. Brunch dishes might include brioche French toast with bacon, blueberry jam, and bourbon maple syrup, while dinner options range from grilled Hudson Valley foie gras with smoked blueberries to slow-cooked rack of Niman Ranch lamb with Israeli couscous and Parmesan broth. The wine cellar holds more than 600 labels, with an emphasis on Bordeaux reds.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
