The Hungry Nomad: Clementine's Belgian Bistro (Gretna/New Orleans)

December 31, 2010

Clementine's Belgian Bistro (Gretna/New Orleans)

In our new mission to discover restaurants in the West Bank we once again headed over the bridge to try some Belgian food. This time chez Clementine's Beligan Bistro. 

First on our ordering list was the cheese fondue and an order of our favorite Belgian beer: Framboise. Having lived in Switzerland and eating Swiss fondue at least once a week, I consider myself a fondue snob. This fondue claimed to have imported cheese and while the strong taste of Gruyere and emmenthaler cheese could not be missed I was left wondering if it was made from powdered cheese rather than real Swiss cheese. Since real  fondue has a very cheesy texture and when you dip the bread the cheese is stringy, yet this fondue was watery and did not have any real melted cheese texture to it.  Needless to say I was disappointed (8/pp for watered down cheese and bread). 

The service and decor at this restaurant were amazing. Our next order was the Blue cheese salad and goat cheese and spinach crepes along side onion soup and Belgian fries. The belgian fries were amazing and reminded me if the street fries in Brussels (make sure to order the dips). Our dishes were delicious (except for the fondue). All in all, we were left satisfied with our meal.  I won't deny them that but it was a tad bit overpriced.  It's a great place to go as a large party. Also the restaurant had no music so if you are looking for a loud restaurant and ambiance then don't go here. However, if you are looking for a quiet meal sprinkled with a bit of romance than definitely make your way over to Clementine's Belgian Bistro.
